> teaching Aesthetics, and also taught at the School of the Art Institute
> of Chicago. In addition to being a beloved teacher, Zack was a
> filmmaker, video artist, painter, and writer.
> According to Jon Steinhorst, an MFA student who works as an assistant in
> the Critical Studies area, "Zack was a wonderful teacher with tremendous
> student reviews and respect from his colleagues. He was extremely
> passionate about film and teaching, and most concerned with impacting
> his students. Zack recently (re)discovered painting... he was a fireball
> of a guy, and this was most evident when he spoke of his need to work
> with paint." If you are unfamiliar with Zack's abstract-figurative
> work, you can view it at:
