The Utah Arts Council and the Sherratt Library of Southern Utah University are proud to present “World of the Wild,” a selection of paintings featuring animals of the wild artwork, from the annual art show sponsored by the Utah Hogle Zoo.
The exhibit will open March 3rd and run until April 5th on the third floor of the library during open library hours.
The art of depicting animals is an ancient one. Paintings of prehistoric animals, on cave walls, can still be seen in Lascaux, France; Alta Mira, Spain; Africa; and Australia. Fremont and Anasazi Indians of Utah also drew animal images as a form of spiritual empowerment.
The SUU Library is also showing an exhibit in the building’s first level display cases on the “Parowan Gap Petroglyphs.” This exhibit features photographs of animals believed to be drawn by the Fremont and Southern Paiute Indians.

Monday - Thursday 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
