Naturally Inspired Silent Auction & Artists Reception

Each spring, the Indianapolis Zoo invites a group of 15 juried artists to work outdoors during our Naturally Inspired Paint Out. Our wildly talented bunch – and some artistically inclined animals – produced beautiful works of art, and this is your chance to take those pieces home with you! 

Join us and bring a friend to enjoy an evening of imagination, hors d'oeuvres, wine and fun at the silent auction and artists' reception. Bid on your favorites while you mingle with the artists, other guests and Zoo patrons.
