Taronga Artist in Residence ‘ZOO AiR’ Art Auction
Sunday 21 August at 2pm
Byron Kennedy Hall, Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park
Earlier this year, 20 renowned contemporary Australian artists made Taronga their second home for three months. They have now packed up their sketchbooks and easels and submitted their final artworks. The paintings, photographs and sculptures have been donated to the Taronga Foundation and will be auctioned by Bonhams Australia on Sunday 21 August, with all proceeds supporting our vital conservation work. Please join us on Sunday.
