Naturally Inspired Art Show presented by The Great Frame Up Downtown

After the paintings created during Naturally Inspired Paint Out Day 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. The Naturally Inspired Art Show is included with Zoo admission.

Join for the annual silent auction and artists’ reception, 5:30 -7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 20, 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 beer.
