Featuring more than 130 artworks from SMoCA’s permanent collection, Wild Thing celebrates all things animal—a menagerie in print, paint and sculpture. This thematic, playful exhibition explores the relationship between artist and animal and its enduring relevance in contemporary art, inviting visitors to discover works from notable Arizona artists such as Mayme Kratz, Randy Slack and Anne Coe, alongside pieces by William Wegman, Lynda Benglis and Alexander Calder. Being in the Southwest, images of horses, snakes and coyotes are routine. But bats and beavers? Yes. Birds and butterflies? Definitely. Fish, cats, dogs, frogs and a hippopotamus? Absolutely, and you will find them here. Children and adults alike will enjoy this family-friendly exhibition that invites visitors to take a walk on the wild side.
