Gentle Giants | Lucy Dickens Fine Art

Gentle Giants

Encountering these gentle giants, while on safari in Kenya, was a truly unforgettable experience. Reticulated giraffes stand up to 20 feet tall and are always scanning the horizon. They have excellent vision and can see for great distances, in color, and with a wide angled vision, essentially seeing behind themselves as well.

This is often why the symbolism of giraffes challenge us to rise above our circumstances and see way into the horizon before us. This vision sees that what we do today creates our tomorrow, it sees potential trouble on the horizon and adjusts accordingly.

Are we looking to the big picture and at the same time being present and truly aware of our surroundings? These stately and grand creatures encourage us to always reach for the sky, to experience nature fully, and to observe all that is around us.

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.”
