The Arts Are Wild! At the Virginia Zoo!


The Arts Are Wild is an awareness opportunity designed to call attention to the importance of literacy and the good reading habits at home. Young Audiences of Virginia, Inc and The Virginia Zoo, will celebrate literacy through the arts with award-winning children's author and illustrator, Cece Bell, of Sock Monkey and Rabbit & Robot. The event is co-hosted by Sandra Parker, anchor at 13 News Now. Attendees will enjoy performances by YAV artists, hands-on activities at the many "Literacy Exploration Stations," as well as visit all the many animal exhibits the Virginia Zoo has to offer!

All costs of this event are included in the General Admission to the Zoo, with no additional charge for any of the Young Audiences of Virginia performances or featured artists.
