Art Gone Wild

Art Gone Wild


BPZOO’s Art Gone Wild online auction, now in its 9th year, features over 35 unique art creations by your favorite zoo artists.

We invite animal and art enthusiasts alike to peruse one-of-a-kind paintings available for purchase by the zoo’s artists in residence. Many animals at the zoo are trained to paint in the traditional sense using brushes, while others choose to paint with their paws, claws, tails and scales. Each work of art has been made especially for the online auction by the Zoo’s resident animal artists, with some help from their keepers of course!

This Art Gone Wild online auction, now in its 9th year, features over 35 unique art creations by your favorite zoo artists. All artwork is wrapped in plastic and includes a card, photo of the artist, a certificate of authenticity and some fun facts about the animal.

As the 12th oldest zoo in the country, BPZOO has delighted and enlightened millions of visitors over its more than a century existence. We are dedicated to preserving the future of wildlife by creating engaging and educational experiences that connect the community to the natural world.

Proceeds from Art Gone Wild directly support the Zoo’s education and conservation programs.

Add a splash of wild to your home or office with one of these beautiful animal created works of art!

The auction opens on Thursday, December 1st and closes on Thursday, December 15th, 2022 at 9:00pm.

Let the friendly bidding begin!
