When the critters travel, they like to go to colorful, artistic communities. Columbus is already well-known for its world-class architecture and public art. So, it wasn’t surprising when they rolled into town.
Many of his friends are unique, one-of-a-kind creations, but some appear throughout his work. Sluggo, the bright green monster, and Philomena, the flying pig, are two of Zinn’s best friends. The duo has even been spotted in Downtown Columbus.
You can find Zinn’s friends sitting on mailboxes, hiding in a lamppost, lounging on the side of a building, and creeping around some of Columbus’ famous architecture. If you walk up to this everyday art at just the right angle, the critters may trick your eyes. They look perfectly 3-D!
Zinn’s friends are semi-permanent works of art, and they won’t stick around Columbus forever, so be sure to visit them before they disappear. Use the map on this page to help you find them, then snap a photo using #VisitColumbusIN
