MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Attention Miami art collectors, there’s a group of new artists in town and they are all painting in the name of charity.

At Zoo Miami Saturday, animals, like Peggy the elephant and Toshi the rhino, explored their artsy side all in the name of benefiting each other.

Artsy Animals At Zoo Miami: Gallery 

The art show is being put together by Zoo Miami and the South Florida Chapter of the American Association of Zookeepers (SFAAZK).

The original artwork will be displayed on May 28th during gallery hours at the Bakehouse Art Complex, 561 NW 32nd St. in Miami.

On June 1st, a free event will be held at the gallery to benefit animal conservation projects. All proceeds will be donated for conservation and research both locally and internationally.

The animal’s paintings will be available through silent auction at the event hosted by Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill.
