Apollo - Feeling Sunny

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The works of cats, camels, chickens and more are now on sale at the Lincoln Children’s Zoo’s semi-annual Animal Art event.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports ( ) that the one-of-a-kind critter creations on canvas feature the works of dozens of animals.

In all, 116 works are to be sold.

The zoo’s Ryan Gross says paintings at last winter’s event sold so quickly and demand was so high that the zoo decided to make Animal Art a biannual event — late summer and late fall.

Prices for the paintings range from $30 to $400 and come in various sizes. Each painting comes with a photo of the artist at work and a certificate of authenticity.
