Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo Animal Art Safari Oct. 27
Paws, claws, toes and tails have been put to canvas by the animals of the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo to create a one-of-a-kind artwork collection that will be on display and offered at auction on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 5 to 8 p.m. Tickets are $50/person in advance or $75 at the door. Please visit alabamagulfcoastzoo. com for more info and to purchase tickets.
The non-profit zoo, located at 1204 Gulf Shores Parkway in Gulf Shores, will open its gates after hours for an Animal Art Safari where guests can purchase original pieces of art created by some of the zoo’s wildest bunch of “artists-in-residence.” It’s a unique and delightful opportunity to get up-close and personal with the zoo’s animal ambassadors, feast on gourmet treats — and participate in a worthy cause.
The silent auction will be held from 5 to 6:45 p.m., followed by a live auction of a few select pieces at 7 p.m. Musical entertainment is provided by Roman Street Band and Dr Rock; gourmet picnic-style food is by COASTAL Catering; craft beers will be served by Fairhope Brewery, plus a selection of specialty wines by M&J Wines.
