Carol L. Fowler 9/10/2012 6:41:20 PM

I always wondered how artists make huge sculptures and murals, since they can't see the entire scope for scale! I am sure it turned out well #10317420

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


Indian artist Nikhil Chopra, a 2003 MFA graduate of The Ohio State University, returned for a public art performance as part of "Finding Time: Columbus Art 2012."

Chopra created a 48'x 132' charcoal drawing of a photograph taken from the stage of the Palace Theater in 1940, on the north wall of the Palace Theater in downtown Columbus.

I took this the day before he finished his work and did not get back until after a heavy rain storm destroyed the drawing.
