2020 Art Show

The show runs from January 25 – March 8 and is free to all paying Zoo guests.

The 2020 show featured 116 art pieces selected from, 266 total pieces submitted by 143 artists for jurying. Sarah Hobin, the Visual Arts and Community Outreach Manager for the Salt Lake City Arts Council, juried the pieces for the show. 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 which will go towards funding sloth habitat conservation in the wild this year. If you are interested in purchasing any of the unsold pieces in the show you can email or call (801) 584-1739 for more information. Pieces are listed in alphabetical order by artists’ last name.
