2014 Art Show
The Zoo is holding its 21st annual art exhibit February 1 – March 16, 2014. This is a free show for all Zoo visitors with a paid Zoo admission. All art work is for sale with 30% of sales going back to support the Zoo’s art programs.
For Artists: If you are interested in submitting artwork for the show, we will generally accept art work the third Saturday of January. You can view a prospectus for the show, download an entry form, or view the 2014 Calendar.
This show was started to provide Utah artists an opportunity to display their works of wildlife and “wildnature” in a setting complementary to their work. This show has grown to be one of the best venues in Utah for viewing wildlife art.
The jurors for the 2014 World of the Wild Art Show will be Marcus Vincent, Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing with the School of the Arts at Utah Valley University, and Travis Lovell, Assistant Professor of Photography with the School of the Arts at Utah Valley University.
View all the pieces from the 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 or the 2010 Shows
