We are proud to announce that renowned artist David Zinn will be at the “C” on Wednesday, August 8 for two events! Zinn’s temporary chalk creations are always improvised on location. His anamorphic art technique makes the characters look like they will jump off the sidewalk! Zinn’s art has achieved global attention, gracing the subway platforms of Manhattan, village squares in Sweden, and as far away as the street corners in Taiwan. We thank our generous friends at D&L Garden Center for their sponsorship of today’s events.
