Artists sought for Pride Zoo



ELLSWORTH — Artists are being sought for colorful contributions to the Ellsworth Pride Zoo to celebrate Pride Month, June 2022.

As there was for the first Ellsworth Pride Fest in 2021, there will be a display of animals at the Knowlton Park in Ellsworth, and the Ellsworth High School GSDA is seeking additional animals created and painted by community members with an artistic flair.

The colors used for animals should include the colors on one of the various Pride flags. Because the Pride Zoo will be displayed outside for a month, each animal should be made of sturdy material that can stand up to weather. No stakes can be put into the ground, so all animals must be freestanding. A heavy base that will keep the sculpture from being blown over is essential. All animals should be finished and ready to erect on May 30, delivered to Knowlton Park.

Contact the EHS GSDA group at [email protected] for questions, or to tell them about your animal.
