Every Spring, the Zoo invites a group of 15 artists to make art "outside" at Naturally Inspired Paint Out Day! Artists transform a blank canvas or a hunk of clay into a beautiful work of art inspired by environment. If you see a painting or a sculpture that you'd like to own, then head over to Hulman Riverhouse at the Gardens for a silent auction afterwards. Reservations are required for the reception and silent auction. Call 317-630-2046.
