November 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Woodland Park Zoo is holding an Art Open House from 1-3 p.m. Sunday with sales of specially commissioned artwork to help support animal care and conservation here and around the world.

Celebrating the beauty and drama of nature, prominent Pacific Northwest artists were commissioned to create images of six of the endangered species that Woodland Park Zoo and its partners are working to save including: African wild dog (by Fumi Watanabe), golden lion tamarin (by Fiona McGuigan), Panamanian golden frog (by Troy Gua), red crowned crane (by Jesse LeDoux), Sumatran tiger (by Don Clark) and western pond turtle (by Natalie Oswald).

One work will be released as a limited edition print each week for six weeks, starting Nov. 14. Prices vary, starting at $200. To purchase, visit the ZooStore or http://www.zoo.org/limitededition.
