When science and art collide! Come and learn about an amazing animal that inspired Frida Kahlo’s artwork – and made a cameo in it.

Kat Greenham will join us at the Gallery and teach us how to do a spider monkey wave. We’ll then cross live to Auckland Zoo to meet the troop of black-handed spider monkeys and to hear about their amazing adaptations.

Programmed as part of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: Art and Life in Modern Mexico, this enthralling presentation will have you finding inspiration to create your own artwork inspired by this fascinating animal.

Kat Greenham is a facilitator in the Conservation Learning Team at Auckland Zoo. She is passionate about making wildlife accessible to all and connecting communities to nature.
