Art On The Zoo Fence was founded as a nonprofit organization in 1953 to support and foster the growth of the vibrant art community in Hawaiʻi. Best known for its weekend art market, located at 2760 Monsarrat Ave., along the Honolulu Zoo fence from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each Saturday and Sunday, the group exclusively features two-dimensional artwork. The organization serves as a platform for artists to showcase their talents, offering a diverse range of art pieces, including paintings, photography, resin art, and alcoholic ink art. Art On The Zoo Fence provides an opportunity for artists to gain exposure, sell their work, receive feedback, and engage with art lovers and collectors in the bustling heart of Waikīkī.
