Animal Aesthetics

September 9, 2016 – January 29, 2017

Animal Aesthetics: Decades of Design at the San Diego Zoo pays tribute to the Zoo’s design department and the impact it has had on the Zoo, and San Diego, over the past five decades.

Focusing on three of the institution’s most distinguished designers—Charles Faust, Bill Noonan, and Tim Reamer— this exhibition showcases rarely seen original artwork by the three artists. Through their artwork, we step into the ever-changing world of graphic design and get a behind-the-scenes peek at the creative process of some of the most pivotal design projects at the San Diego Zoo during the last half century.
