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.
