A grand swish of primary colors created by a semi-native son, "Brushstrokes In Flight" is Columbus' pop-art greeting for its visitors. – Pop Daddy
"Brushstrokes" artist Roy Lichtenstein was considered one of the founders of the pop art movement. He created giant cartoon images aped from bubble gum wrappers in the late 1950s. He received his master's degree from Ohio State University in 1951.

The Sculpture
A work of steel and paint, "Brushstrokes" is designed to look like a whimsical stroke that might come from the paintbrush of a 40-foot cartoon character. For years, it stood in front of the Port Columbus International Airport. It is now the focal point of one of the airport's new indoor atriums.

Brushtrokes in Fight
Often used as a symbol of the city in the 1980s, residents couldn't decide if they loved or hated the sculpture. But when maverick Mayor Dana "Buck" Rinehart promised to give "Brushstrokes" to Genoa, Italy, in exchange for a statue of Christopher Columbus, the ensuing outcry against the mayor prevented the sculpture from leaving us.
