2015 Art Show
The Zoo will be holding its 22nd annual art exhibit January 31 – March 15, 2015. This is a free show for all Zoo visitors with a paid Zoo admission.
For Artists: If you are interested in submitting artwork for the show, we generally accept art work on the third Saturday in January. You can view a prospectus for the show, download an entry form, or view the 2015 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 juror for the 2015 World of the Wild Art Show was Meri DeCaria the Director/Curator at the Phillips Gallery in Salt Lake City.
View all the pieces from the 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 or the 2010 Shows
