Tape Art Finale: Party on the Plaza

Join us in removing the mural created by the Rhode Island-based artist collective Tape Art.
Using ladders, a boom lift and a bountiful amount of low-adhesive paper tape, Tape Art founder Michael Townsend, creative director Leah Smith and the Tape Art Crew will begin the mural-making process on the Brooks Museum's façade on Monday, May 8. The public is invited to drop by to observe the progress of the work, to participate and to interact with the artists. The artwork created in our third project of the Brooks Outside series is intentionally temporary.
Regardless of the time spent to create the mural, the installation will end with an invitation to the public to join in the removal process on Wednesday, May 24. Tape Art Finale: Party on the Plaza will take place from 4 to 7 p.m. with music, art making, food trucks and more.
Brooks Outside: Tape Art is sponsored by Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs LLP and Deloitte Services LP, with special thanks to Ruth and Casey Bowlin and Montgomery Martin Contractors.
