Art Gone Wild


The auction opens on Monday, November 27th, and closes on Monday, December 11th, 2023 at 9:00pm.

BPZOO’s Art Gone Wild online auction, now in its 10th year, features over 35 unique art creations by your favorite zoo artists.

Calling all animal aficionados and art enthusiasts! Get ready to embark on a wild journey as we unveil the Art Gone Wild online auction, celebrating its 10th year of unleashing the creativity of our talented zoo residents.

Our artists in residence are not your typical painters—some use paws, claws, tails, and scales to create masterpieces that are truly one-of-a-kind. It’s a wild world out there, and our zoo animals are ready to showcase their artistic prowess!

Join us as we present over 35 unique art creations crafted by your favorite zoo artists. Each masterpiece comes meticulously wrapped in plastic and includes a card, a photo of the artist (yes, the animal!), a certificate of authenticity, and some fascinating fun facts about the creators behind the brushstrokes.

But here’s the best part—when you bid on these incredible works of art, you’re not just adding a unique piece to your collection; you’re supporting the future of wildlife. All proceeds from Art Gone Wild go directly to fueling the Zoo’s education and conservation programs.

So, let your love for art and animals collide in this wild online auction, where every bid makes a difference!
