Animal Art For Sale at the KC Zoo This Weekend
Have you ever desired a unique piece of art for your home or office? Well, this weekend is your chance to pick up a masterpiece painted by Lady the elephant. Or some of her other friends in residence at the Kansas City Zoo.
This weekend the Kansas City Zoo presents Art for the Animals. Zoo guests will be able to create their own works of art in the zoo's lobby. Strike a pose at the zoo's photo op. And even stop by the zoo's gift shop to purchase artwork created by the animals in the zoo's care.
Additionally, animals will be showing off their natural talents throughout the weekend as animal care teams host creative keeper chats. And Pinot's Palette will be hosting a painting class from 2:00 PM -4:00 PM CDT at the zoo with proceeds benefiting conservation at the zoo.
Art for the Animals-related programming is free with zoo admission and is scheduled from 10:00 AM -3:00 PM on both Saturday and Sunday, March 26 and March 27, although there is a fee for the painting class hosted by Pinot's Palette, and separate registration is required.
Zoo admission this weekend cost $18.00 per person, and children 3-11 and seniors 55+ will save a dollar. Residents of Jackson and Clay counties are eligible for discounted admission.
So what artists in residence at the zoo made some art besides Lady the elephant? Well, the Kansas City Zoo isn't saying exactly, but their elephants, monkeys, and sea lions have all contributed art which will be available for purchase in the gift shop. I think I could use something abstract from a sea lion for my wall.
