“This is a wonderful way to pay homage to the beauty and wonder of the zoo,” said Barbara Hauser, founder of The Red Door Project. “We invite everyone to stretch their artistic muscles and enter a piece to be showcased against the amazing backdrop of the Zoo’s spring tulips.”

“Wildlife has an undeniable power to inspire, and artists have the power to add perspective and depth of meaning,” said Dave Jenike, COO, Cincinnati Zoo. “Bringing art and wildlife together at the Zoo will be exceptional, and a perfect way to celebrate Earth Day.”

Artwork is due April 17, from 9 am–6 pm at the Art Academy of Cincinnati. Any medium is accepted. Due to the nature of the space, one piece of artwork will be accepted per artist. All artwork subject to review and is at the discretion of the Art Academy. Artist registration can be found here at http://bit.ly/LionsTigerSustainability

About the Red Door Project:

Artists all over Cincinnati have been coming together for over seven years to participate in The Red Door Project’s pop-up art gallery. Founded in 2014 by Barbara Hauser, The Red Door Project has become a popular gallery featuring art from hundreds of local artists and has made purchasing artwork more accessible to people all over Cincinnati.

March 2020, The Red Door Project transitioned over to the Art Academy of Cincinnati and is now called The Red Door Project powered by the Art Academy of Cincinnati.

The uniquely themed monthly auction showcased the effort of hundreds of local artists, filling vacant buildings, cultural institutions and prominent galleries with edgy work and putting thousands of dollars into the local art economy.
