Zoo animals create art on display at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital

Art created by zoo animals from the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park is on display, and for sale, through Sept. 28 on the 12th floor of the Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital. View a slideshow of some of the work below.

The zoo will give the hospital 25 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the paintings, ranging from 6-by-6-inch cockroach art for $15, to a 60-by-40-inch rainbow spray by the Asian elephant, Indy for $665.

Watch the animals paint.

The animals create the art work with the help of zookeepers. Some use their hands to hold the paint brushes. Others use their mouths. The elephants use their trunks. Here’s a sample of some of the art on display:
