Are you wild about art?
Join the Phoenix Zoo in celebrating the splendor of animals and nature with Art on the Wild Side, a program dedicated to inspiration, celebration and conservation through art. Exhibits in our Savanna Gallery and Wild Side Gallery rotate throughout the year, each featuring a selection of artists who share their unique vision of wildlife and conservation via photography, paint and mixed media, allowing new ways for guests to engage in the Zoo’s mission to care for the natural world while being inspired by nature and animals.
The Savanna Gallery is located inside the air-conditioned Savanna Grill.
The Wild Side Gallery is found just beyond the turnstiles at the Zoo’s entrance.
Enjoy the beautiful artwork of Guy Combes, Jennifer Krueger and Ray DelMuro as they take you on a journey “Into the Wilds.”

Join the Phoenix Zoo as we celebrate art and the splendor of nature in our all-new Wild Side Gallery, the Zoo’s first venue dedicated to the rotating exhibits of Art on the Wild Side.
This visionary gallery brings the Valley’s history to life with this refurbishment of one of the Zoo’s original 1970s buildings. Originally an Activity Center, the Wild Side Gallery will now allow the Zoo to share the wonders of the arts with our nearly 1.4 million annual guests.
As one of the top attractions in Arizona, the Phoenix Zoo is pleased to present the Wild Side Gallery’s premiere exhibit highlighting the magnificence of THE top attraction: the Grand Canyon. This exhibit, Between River and Rim, is presented in partnership with Grand Canyon Trust and showcases the work of acclaimed National Geographic photographer Pete McBride and author Kevin Fedarko, who share their journey of nearly 800 trail-less miles through the heart of the Grand Canyon and the threats to the canyon they discovered along the way.
