From the Indianapolis Zoo's website:

Once again, the Indianapolis Zoo will be the site of a unique art experience. Selected artists from around Indiana will be on grounds at the Zoo and White River Gardens on May 2 painting
en plein air
their favorite subjects from the natural world. Artists are free to choose any subject they like, from the beautiful flowers and butterflies in the Gardens to the majestic giraffes and elephants at the Zoo. The public is invited to come and witness the artists at work on grounds!

The finished paintings will be on display in the Schaefer Rotunda at the Gardens from May 29-August 27, then the works will be auctioned off at the Naturally Inspired Paint Out Reception on August 27 with all proceeds benefitting the Zoo. Information on reserving your spot at the Reception will be available later this year. Cost is $10 for Zoo members & guests and $25 for non-members. This event is presented in partnership with The Great Frame Up of Indianapolis.

  2. Hi ,

    Thanks for writing such an interesting article. It’s really good to know about the real estate and home decoration in detail. As a homeowner, you may be an avid do-it-yourselfer, but when it comes to painting your home, inside or out the job could get a little overwhelming especially if you don’t have all the appropriate equipment. This could be one place where having a qualified painter do the job is a better idea than trying to tackle the project yourself. By hiring a qualified Indianapolis painter you can make sure the job is done right and leave tackling those high spots to someone else.

    Most people paint their home as a routine part of maintenance and to keep up appearances with the neighborhood but if the paint is of poor agility or the work is poorly done, you defeat the entire purpose of the project. Anyone can paint but to do the job right takes a certain degree of talent so you don’t want to hire anyone that claims to be a painter until you check them out first. Whether you’re looking for someone to paint a single room or the entire exterior of your home you want to make certain you’re hiring a qualified painter for the job.
