It begins with an empty city lot and ends with a gleaming new building. But what happens in between? With his trademark sketch pad, watercolors, and sharp eye for atmosphere and detail, Elisha Cooper takes note of what goes on at a construction site — from the obvious to the not-so-obvious.

Come see (and hear) the building — it's going up now!
