The Rochester chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK), located at the Seneca Park Zoo brings you this year’s VIRTUAL Art Expo! In an effort to keep everyone safe, this year’s Art Expo will be held online and art will be available at auction to the highest bidder. For the first time ever, animal artwork will be available to fans outside the Rochester area! In addition to artwork painted by animals in our care, this year will also feature paintings made by Rochester Artist Cal Rubright and an animal-themed quilt handmade by the Rochester Modern Quilting Guild. You’ll also have the opportunity to bid on personal painting sessions with select animals.
CALLING ALL QUILT LOVERS:
To kick off our yearly AAZK Art Expo fundraiser, we have an amazing opportunity for everyone to win a hand-made, one-of-a-kind, animal-themed quilt created by members of the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild and donated to the Seneca Park Zoo AAZK Chapter.

– Items can be picked up at the zoo starting Monday, October 19 for free.
– Items can also be shipped out of town but NOT internationally. Winner pays shipping costs.
To ensure fairness, the drawing will take place at the zoo in the presence of witnesses and a video of the drawing will be posted on our Facebook Page.
If you would like to enter for someone else (as a gift) please be sure to include their name and phone number in the note section of the PayPal page and that person will be entered instead of you.
Due to high interest, the drawing will be open to all zoo employees and members of the Seneca Park Zoo AAZK Chapter with the exception of chapter officers administering the drawing and their immediate family.
Participants DO NOT have to be in the Rochester area. For out-of-town winners that can not pick up the quilt, at the zoo, the quilt will be shipped to you at no expense.
