Zoofari at the Louisville Zoo

The Friends of the Louisville Zoo contracts Yardbirds every year for the annual Zoofari event – the largest fundraising event that benefits the Zoo. Every year Yardbirds designs a new sculpture that is given as corporate gifts for the tables at the fundraiser.  There is a theme every year and Yardbirds designs a new piece that fits within that theme. Yardbirds also donate a larger sculpture for the silent auction. Usually, the patrons of the event end up becoming Yardbirds collectors with each fun party they attend.

Below are some of the sculptures that Yardbirds has created for past Zoofari events.

Peacock – 2008

Camel – 2001

Polar Bear – 2018

Seal – 2010
