There is nothing quite like a sunset on the African plains, with her brilliant sun dropping through the clouds and into the horizon before me. Oranges and reds spread along the sky transforming all into a world of wonder, one you don’t want to leave. The wildness of this place, with all her incredible beasts and birds, entrances me. I hear the beat of the drums, the sound of her people singing, as I gaze off into the distance. I know I must return home and yet I leave a part of my heart here in Africa forever.

Lucy’s Safari Adventures series will be unveiled at the Phoenix Zoo’s, “Art on the Wild Side” exhibition Feb 1 – May 31, 2020. Artists, Lucy Dickens, Joye DeGoede, and Anne Peyton will showcase their unique visions of wildlife and conservation in the Savanna Gallery, located in the Savanna Grill. Art will be available for purchase and zoo admission is required. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Zoo’s conservation initiatives.
“Art on the Wild Side” is a great collaboration between The Arizona Center for Nature Conservation/Phoenix Zoo and select local artists to display their work in our new Savanna Gallery. This rotating exhibit enhances our guests’ experience to not only see live animals on Zoo grounds, but also be inspired by the beautiful artwork along the walls of the Gallery, helping us communicate the importance of national and international conservation efforts. Exhibited artwork embraces the mission of the Phoenix Zoo: to advance the stewardship and conservation of animals and their habitats while providing experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world.”
