Boo at the Zoo with Zoo Atlanta

Come celebrate “Boo at the Zoo” with Zoo Atlanta and ECO-CELL, this weekend, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Explore magical paths, sample sweet treats and meet the whimsical characters of Zoo Boo Town.

As Zoo Atlanta’s partner in cell phone recycling, ECO-CELL will be collecting used cell phones this weekend and next weekend during the “Boo at the Zoo” event.

ECO-CELL will donate 10% of the value of each phone collected in October to Zoo Atlanta (800 Cherokee Ave. SE, Atlanta), and, during the festival, will be distributing free press-on tattoos to all children who bring in phones. This means more money for highly valuable conservation and education programs.

The event is free for Zoo Members and children under three are free with general admission.

Momentary Performances is a series of 8 different choreographed performances that will take place in 8 different locations in Atlanta. Over the course of a month, each performance will occur 4 times. 

This project stems from Walton’s interest in the subtle, everyday actions of public life.  Through the simple of use of vinyl text installed in public space, everyday actions are formalized and made able to taking on a new life.  Through this amplification, intimate everyday occurrences become celebrated events and blur the line between real-life and theater.

These performances will run through October 31st. Check for daily schedule, below:
