We're Throwing a Party Beside Our New Tiger Mural
Have you seen the eye of the tiger? "El Tigre" is here among us. And you can hang out with her this weekend.
Seriously. "El Tigre" is in downtown Sacramento, painted by local artist Cabrón on our 85-foot-long east-facing wall. She's one big cat, all right, and she's dramatically depicted behind bars, being held captive. Cabrón's imagery captivates and we hope inspires local dialogue about keeping wildlife in the wild.
Speaking of wild, you're all invited to come check out the mural up-close in a mere two days, when we're throwing a Second Saturday "Off the Wall" event from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the shadow of "El Tigre" at the southwest corner of S and 12th streets, six blocks from the Capitol. (Here's a map.)
In addition to meeting members of our plucky little non-profit staff, you'll also find food, drinks, music, indie craft-vendors and more. Cabrón will be on hand to sign prints of the mural and our very own monkeys from the Born Free USA Primate Sanctuary have created paintings that will be auctioned. This is an "Off the Wall" event you won't want to miss. (Read more.)
No need to RSVP — just show up! We'll keep an eye out for you …
