More than 500 people attended The Wildlife Experience's 2nd Annual Art Sale and Wine Tasting June 6. Amateur artists tried their hand at painting in one room, while professional artists sculpted from live animal models and created life-like flowers with a few brushstrokes in another. The museum's Great Hall hosted the majority of the tastings; visitors sampled more than 200 varieties of wine from around the world and food from local restaurants. With wine glasses in hand, they browsed through featured art exhibits called “America's Parks II” and “Wild Music: Sounds & Songs of Life.”
