2016 World of the Wild Art Show

Over 8,000 visitors viewed the artwork during the show’s run and 20 pieces were sold!

The 2016 show featured 118 art pieces selected from, 269 total pieces submitted by 155 artists for jurying. Laura Hurtado,  the Global Art Acquisition Curator for the LDS Church History Museum, juried the pieces for the show and selected the artists that won cash awards. All the art work was created by Utah artists and had to have been completed within three years of the opening of the show. The Zoo retains a 30% commission on all artwork sold to help offset the costs of holding this annual event. If you are interested in participating in the show you can contact Jameson Weston or call (801) 584-1739 for more information. Pieces are listed in alphabetical order by artists’ last name.
