Art Gone Wild
Visiting the Zoo in June? You definitely don’t want to miss seeing artists live in action during Art Gone Wild!
Each year more than 30 local artists participate in Art Gone Wild, Atlanta’s wildest plein air event. With varying styles and forms – from acrylic to sculpture – they fill the Zoo with beautiful colors and amazing representations of the animals, plants and scenery. This year we are happy to announce many returning favorites, along with several exciting new additions to the artist lineup!
Paint-Out Week | June 3 – 7 | 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
From June 3-7, up to 40 incredible artists will be stationed throughout the Zoo creating original works of art inspired by the animals of Zoo Atlanta. Select pieces created here at the Zoo en plein air (in the open air) during Paint-Out Week will be available for purchase during the Art Gone Wild Sale, June 15 and 16 in the Conservation Action Resource Center (ARC) during Zoo business hours.
Plan on stopping by, saying hello to our artists, and watching the magic happen.
Clothesline Sale | June 4 – 7 | 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
