More About ​​​​Naturally Inspired Paint Out Day at the Zoo

Paint Out Day: April 21, 2018
Art Show: June 1-Aug. 22, 2018
Silent Auction: Aug. 23, 2018

Experience the Zoo through the eyes of artists — both human and animal — during our 16th annual Naturally Inspired Paint Out Day on Saturday, April 21! During this annual event, artists transform a blank canvas or a hunk of clay into a truly extraordinary work of art inspired by the natural world, right here at the Indianapolis Zoo and White River Gardens.

After the paintings have dried and been professionally framed by The Great Frame Up Downtown, they are displayed for the summer in the Schaefer Rotunda at White River Gardens. Plus, you also get to enjoy the works of some of our more artistically inclined animals. Who knows — you may see a penguin Picasso, a walrus Warhol, an elephant Escher and many others!

See a painting or sculpture that you'd like to have at home? Then join us for the annual silent auction and artists' reception, 5:30-7:30pm on Thursday, Aug. 23, in the Hulman Riverhouse at the Gardens. Bid on your favorite artwork or just enjoy the show! You'll also get to mingle with artists and other Zoo patrons, get after-hours access to the Hilbert Conservatory, with its beautiful views of downtown Indianapolis, and savor light hors d'oeuvres and wine. Plus, one of the 15 talented artists will receive the Members Choice award. Reservations are required for the reception and silent auction.
