Funny Zoo Los Angeles
Funny Zoo is a playful, colorful public art exhibit and cultural initiative that features numerous life-sized sculptures of wild animals. The movement is designed to promote awareness of biodiversity, as well as conservation of the Earth's endangered species and environment.
Originally created in France, Funny Zoo soon spread to multiple European cities. Now, the unique parade is on its way to the United States in 2016 where it will dock on the beautiful coast of Southern California like an ark returning to land.
Funny Zoo is brought to the United States by French Pacific Events, a marketing and event production company based in Malibu, CA, which develops cultural projects to benefit charities. The company's founders, Bernard Scoffié & Jean-Fabrice Brunel, have previously organized several large-scale public art events throughout the world.
You may have seen the dollar bill covered Rhino at the premier exhibition of Animal History Museum in L.A. (Curated by Chuck Wolf). Look for more animals to take over Los Angeles between June and December 2016 during the public art installation of Funny Zoo L.A.
The installation culminates in a red carpet gala with auction to benefit California Wildlife Center in December.
