On Location: Kansas City Zoo

I took my class to the KC Zoo today. Between hunting them down and bugging them about their drawings, I did some sketching myself. This is the old Ape House that will be torn down tomorrow (as I was informed by a groundskeeper as I was drawing). Our zoo's primates now live in much more comfortable, natural habitats, which is fantastic. But it's still a little sad to see this old relic go. My students, most of whom are not from Kansas City, didn't have any memory of it. They all said it reminded them of Jurassic Park.
