Animal art or art made with animals?

The art up for auction is a unique collaboration between 7 local artists and 7 Topeka Zoo animals. This fun endeavor, coordinated by DeAna Morrison of Amused gallery, has produced a unique collection of art in varying styles.  Each piece of art includes contributions from both artist and animal. The painting process for the animals is an enriching and sensory-stimulating activity. Sharon Luella Easterling worked with the otters, Becky Drager the Hippo, Michael Mize the Tiger, Lois VanLiew the Painted Dog, Shely Bedsaul the Opossum, Becki Waugh the Elephant, Maia Morrison the Lion!
