2018 Art Show

The show ran from January 27 – March 11 and was free to all paying Zoo guests.

The 2018 show featured 122 art pieces selected from, 253 total pieces submitted by 153 artists for jurying. Jameson Weston, the Director of Creative Services, 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 email or call (801) 584-1739 for more information. Pieces are listed in alphabetical order by artists’ last name.
