Famous Street Artist set to descend on Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach welcomes street artist David Zinn to town from March 26-March 30, 2019.

David Zinn’s temporary chalk drawings are inspired by objects, street fixtures and even cracks in the sidewalk, in order to create 3-D creatures. From the curious to the playful, his monsters and animals breathe life to the inanimate object transforming the mundane into the joyful. 

Zinn will be drawing his creatures in the Heisler Park and Downtown Laguna Beach areas for five days, which will consist of more than 16 illustrations. Join us in Heisler Park/Downtown to hunt down Zinn’s creatures as they emerge from the landscape and will be sure to stop you in your tracks. Play along on this creature “hunt” and be entered for a chance to win signed treasures from David Zinn himself.

How to play along on the Creature Treasure Hunt

March 26 – March 30
  1. Visit Heisler Park and Downtown Laguna Beach from March 26-30 and be sure to keep an eye out for his chalk drawings.
  2. Snap a photo of the creatures you hunt down.
  3. Gather photos of 8 different creatures.
  4. Post the photos on Instagram and/or Facebook tagging @VisitLaguna, @DavidZinn and #MyLagunaBeach.
  5. Stop by our Visitors Center (381 Forest Avenue, Open daily 10am-5pm) to show us your photos.
  6. The first four people with photos of 8 different creatures will win one of these signed items from David Zinn.

This art instillation is possible because of the City of Laguna Beach Temporary Art Sub-committee. Chair, Adam Schwerner says, “We want to explore every genre of temporary, and you can’t get more temporary and fleeting than chalk art. It’s a thrill to invite David to Laguna Beach and have programming that younger members of our community can embrace and enjoy.”
