September 12th, 2015: Zoo Art

Here's your chance to score Zoo Art, paintings from critters at the Oakland Zoo. I apologize for being late, but the paintings went up for bid on ebay September 10th. No, I don't have a link, treasures like this are worth doing some digging.

Welcome to the second annual “Animal Art Show” featuring Oakland Zoo’s amazing artists - the animals! Would you like a one-of a kind painting created by an elephant? A lemur? A hyena? Even a cockroach? You’ve come to the right place. Not only will you have a unique and original work of art, 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these masterpieces will go to support Oakland Zoo’s conservation programs for animals in the wild.

Take a look below for a sneak peek at the many animal artists that participated in this year’ show. The finished artwork will be available to view online in the coming weeks. Each painting will be framed and include a photo of the artist as well as his or her biography.

Please know that none of the animals were forced or coerced into participating. The painting sessions were conducted using only positive-reinforcement methods and the animals were freely allowed to refuse participation at any time during the painting sessions.

It ain't Grandma Moses, but it's Unique conversation starters from positively reinforced animals, rather than Asian child sweat shops.
There are ebay links for each painting, at the Oakland zoo site I linked above.

One of the first "paintings by animals" that I remember was at the
Oregon Zoo by a couple of monkeys ... almost old newsreel stuff.

When we moved to PDX, I got involved with this Zoo and learned that the
entire activity was justified as keeping the animals entertained and not bored.

But then animal rights people made a issue about the Zoo earning $ from selling the "paintings"
and the head zoo keeper was actually forced out of his job over the squabble.

True ? I think so...

I kinda like the ones by the meerkats & the chimp. Maybe the cockroach, too.

The elephant one looks like psychedelic sperm.
