Public Program:
New Museum First Saturdays for Families: Nikhil Chopra: Drawing Memories
January 2 2010
Nikhil Chopra combines theater, portraiture, landscape drawing, photography, art actions, and installation to chronicle the world through live performance. In character as a Victorian draughtsman Yog Raj Chitrakar, Chopra will visit several locations in Manhattan in early November to create large-scale drawings to form a panoramic view of the city. Inspired by his artistic process, discover the seventh-floor Sky Room’s panoramic view of lower Manhattan and create a large-scale drawing that preserves an image of our city.

This program is designed and recommended for families with children four to fifteen years old, and includes free New Museum admission for up to two adults per family.
