The Tape Art Crew
Tuesday, July 17th - Friday, July 20th
The Tape Art Crew will be at Wilkes University for a Micro-Residency at the Sordoni Art Gallery from July 17th - 20th. The group will create a temporary tape mural on the exterior brick wall of the Gallery. Drop by anytime Tuesday-Friday to see the mural evolve and talk to the artists.
The Tape Art Crew is an evolving group of public artists founded in Providence, Rhode Island in 1989. They were the first artists to consistently use tape as a primary medium for creating large-scale drawings and installations. As such, they have been called the inventors of Tape Art. They have created over 500 large murals and thousands of smaller drawings on walls around the globe.
Make sure you see the artwork before it disappears!
