Learn how painters tape can become a tool for artistic expression, community building and storytelling. Together, IU students and community members will collaborate to complete mural components alongside TapeArt artists that will later be displayed throughout the Bloomington community and at IU inside Maxwell Hall during Gallery Walk. Murals are completed using painters tape and there is no cost to participate.
Below is a breakout of exciting TapeArt activities. No artistic background is needed to join this fun project. All instructions and materials will be provided by the artists on-site.
August 28th and 29th
Sign up to meet IU Corps at the Sample Gates and walk with us to FAR Center for Contemporary Arts, about a 15-minute walk. Spend time learning and creating community tape art then walk back to campus with us for pizza. No previous art experience needed.
Join us at First Thurdays and learn how something as simple as painters tape becomes a tool for artistic expression, community building, and storytelling. Come on your own, as a family, on a date or bring a large group. You’ll learn directly from Tape Art creators Michael Townsend and Leah Smith and participate in the Sticking Together Community Tape Art Project
