Austin Zoo Revue
Last fall 12 fiberglass animals arrived at Austin Zoo & Animal Sanctuary to be decorated by 12 artists chosen in a juried competition. Each artist was assigned an animal. There are now 12 artistic works in progress which will be sold in a live auction at our May 10, 2014 Austin Zoo Revue gala fundraiser! Download the Sponsorship Packet today!
