The animals came out to play last night at Royal/T for the opening party of the Nonlife Zoo, an imaginative and eco-conscious pop-up exhibit. Before the costumed guests arrived to dance and celebrate, we took a look at the art on display.

The exhibit is described as follows:

The Nonlife Zoo is an imaginary visual of our planet created to raise awareness of animal preservation in the hope to improve our social responsibility to the environment. The Nonlife Zoo series was inspired to reflect on our behavior and the impact on the intricate balance between nature and life on earth. All animals are designed with human-like standing forms and unified expressions to remind us of their coexistence on this planet. They all have cuddly and colorful appearances, yet with conflicting emotionless expressions, as if they are silently expressing their call for help.

For last night's "Night in the Jungle" party guests were encouraged to dress like their favorite animals, and were able to enjoy some of the new vegetarian items on the Royal/T cafe menu. If you've got kids, you might want to check out their family-oriented "Day at the Zoo" event today for face-painting, cupcakes, and other fun from Noon to 4 p.m.
