Sidewalk Chalk Day
Sidewalk Chalk Day returns this year with local favorite David Zinn leading the charge at Top of the Park. Join us on June 12 (rain date June 14) for an extravaganza of personal expression. Chalk at Top of the Park, on your own sidewalk, or wherever you choose to make your canvas! The Ann Arbor District Library (AADL) will provide prizes for the winners. Use the hashtag #a2chalkday with your creation on social media for a chance to win.
David Zinn’s chalk work began in 2001 as an excuse to linger outdoors, but has since achieved global notoriety through the sharing of photos on Facebook, Huffington Post UK, The Cheezburger Network, Street Art Utopia, and Archie McPhee’s Endless Geyser of Awesome. Be inspired by his ability to incorporate 3-D illusions into familiar scenery and have fun searching for his most frequent characters, Sluggo, a bright green monster with stalk eyes and irreverent habits, Philomena, a phlegmatic flying pig, and many entertaining mice.
His whimsical chalk drawings can be discovered and enjoyed for the duration of the festival.
