Art Colors Life.
Zoo Keepers work with the animals that enjoy painting as a form of enrichment. Some animals paint year-round, like our orangutans and elephants, while others simply try it out. Special edition artwork is produced on unique occasions by an individual animal or a combination of animals contributing to the final piece. Methods and processes therefore vary by species, and all are a part of enrichment for the animal(s).
Unique Benefits of Special Edition Art:
– Painting enriches the animal’s lives and stimulates their minds.
– Each animal has its own individual style of painting.
– These are one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork.
– Proceeds from sale of Special Edition Art go toward the care of all the animals at the Zoo.
