Leafboat Koi Pond by David Zinn

Leafboat Koi Pond by David Zinn

David Zinn has been drawing on sidewalks for well over a decade, using chalk and charcoal to create anamorphic 3D creatures which, when viewed at a precise angle, appear to exist in the real world. They often incorporate parts of the landscape and found objects, such as cracks in concrete or leaves on the ground. He is inspired by a desire to place cheerful art underfoot in unexpected places and to embrace the temporary nature of all things. For this exhibit, photographs of his street art installations will be on display. Zinn is a lifelong Michigander with a degree in creative writing from the U-M Residential College, and he worked for many years as a children’s radio host on WCBN and Michigan Radio. Zinn will also give an artist demonstration alongside a musical performance by Magdalen Fossum in the University Hospital Courtyard on Thurs, July 21, 2016 from 12:00-1:00 pm.
