World of the Wild Annual Art Show

Each year the Zoo holds an annual art show for Utah artists. This exhibit was started to provide Utah artists an opportunity to display their works of wildlife and “wildnature” in a setting complimentary to their work. This show has grown to be one of the best venues in Utah for viewing wildlife and nature art. Learn more about the show and how to submit art work for our next show. Check our Art Show Calendar for important dates.

Our members are very important to us, here at Hogle Zoo. To show our appreciation, we host special members-only events through out the summer season. Members can experience the magic of the Zoo at twilight with our “Stay Late ’til 8″ nights. Or, for those early risers, our “Sunrise Safaris” give members a chance to see the Zoo’s animals greet the day before we open to the public.
