LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)—Concrete served as the canvas Wednesday when a Michigan artist showed off his chalk skills.
Children and adults gathered outside the Lansing Art Gallery along North Washington Street to watch David Zinn work.
Zinn explained the importance of art during his demonstration, which was part of Project Pop Up.
He said chalk makes art more accessible to people because it’s nearly universal.
“Chalk is not a mysterious or expensive artistic medium. You can find [chalk pieces] everywhere. They don’t cost a lot of money and you can make whatever you want because the rain is going to wash it away anyway,” said Zinn.
It took Zinn just 30 minutes to transform a square of concrete into a 3D monster.
Project Pop Up wraps up Aug. 12 with a “Flash Finale” by Chad Badgero and Missy Lilje.
