Art Gone Wild Kickoff Party and Art Sale
Art created during Paint-Out Week will be on view and available for purchase on June 15, 16 and 17.
The inspirations of nature will appear in the works of 40 artists in a limited-time special gallery exhibition at the Art Gone Wild Art Show and Sale, the culmination of Art Gone Wild presented by Modo Modo Agency, on Saturday and Sunday, June 16 and 17, 2018. The exhibition will launch with a Kickoff Party on Friday, June 15.
Selected during a call for artists in spring 2018, many of Atlanta’s top talents created works of art throughout Zoo grounds during the fifth-annual Paint-Out Week from June 4 through June 8. The artists have generously agreed to donate a portion of proceeds of art sales to conservation programs at Zoo Atlanta.
