The Art Of Zinn
For anyone who spends much time walking around downtown Ann Arbor, it's hard not to have stumbled across one of David Zinn's whimsical sidewalk chalk drawings. They often depict the adventures of a little green guy named Sluggo, who might be found playing in a pile of leaves, hanging out with a flying pig, or simply taking a coffee break. In the artist's own words, they're lighthearted and trivial, and soothingly self-destructing. That is, they're meant to be temporary, to wash away with the next rain. Zinn and two other local artists were announced as this year's winners of the Public Art Commission's annual Golden Paintbrush Awards. Read the story.
