Teams from religious groups, community organizations, and neighborhoods are invited to learn how to create joyful, humorous, temporary public works of art. This event will include an outdoor component in Blaine Memorial UMC’s parking lot.
David Zinn has been creating original artwork in and around Ann Arbor since 1987, serving all manner of commercial clients from small shops to major municipalities while simultaneously sneaking “pointless” art into the world at large. His temporary street art is composed entirely of chalk, charcoal and found objects, and is always improvised on location. He will teach teams of people of all ages how to create eye-catching pop-up art in his morning workshop. Check out his work.
The goal is to form teams of intergenerational people representing neighborhoods throughout the city. Their role is to attend the workshop as a team where they will learn the basics of chalk art. Then, they will return to their neighborhoods and produce their neighborhood temporary art pop-up. This event is FREE and open to the public.
