The University of New Mexico’s Homecoming Week kicked off on Monday, Sept. 25 with a variety of activities hosted with returning alumni and current students in mind. One of these events featured 3D Chalk Artist Chris Carlson. ASUNM Lobo Spirit allotted him a space near the Duck Pond to create a two-day installation project, beginning Monday and ending Tuesday. Carlson’s previous 3-D pieces ranged from images of the children’s game, the Hungry Hippos, a recreation of “Jaws,” the Statue of Liberty celebrating America’s birthday and more. But this time, he created images of Lobos to illustrate UNM pride.
