Beasties™ Safari: The Project
Beasties Safari, presented by Blue Moon, is an exciting public art project that provides visual representations of Beasties™ zoo animals while raising funds to support the enhancement of our “Adventure Africa” exhibit. Dozens of local businesses have generously sponsored these whimsical creatures which have been designed and painted by local artists.
