Meet Artist David Zinn
March 22 - 24

David Zinn has spent a dozen years creating his most enduring artworks in a medium that cannot be framed, sold or even preserved: sidewalk chalk. His installations appear as three-dimensional creatures incorporated into the real world and then disappear soon after, but their photos continue to receive popular acclaim all over the world in newspapers, blogs and social media.

Check out a series of events featuring David Zinn below.
