One local artist is giving you the chance to see a massive art piece as it’s made.

Jason Folkerts has already started working on his drawing on the plaza outside of the KSFY Studio.

It is more than 20-feet long, and he will work on it for 24 hours straight.

“A year ago I thought about the idea,” he said. “I wanted to wrap it around something, I felt it was a good opportunity to help an organization in the community, so when this came around it was perfect to do it.”

Folkerts said the sketch will consist of around 120 of buildings from Sioux Falls and will be on display at the Washington Pavilion through July once it is completed.

Folkerts is sketching the piece in coordination with Serve Sioux Falls.

He is expected to finish the piece around noon Saturday.
