All of our mural and installation artwork is site specific, and our collaborative Tape Art workshops and service projects are designed to suit the needs of the communities we work with. We have yet to find a place where Tape Art cannot serve a purpose.
Big art that wraps buildings and brings museums to life. Fund-raising and community engagement.
Large-scale public engagement art projects that work with communities to tell their stories on their walls.
School residencies and workshops. Transform your school's hallways or brings students out to make art for their community.
We are celebrating 30 years of taping with a book on our process of collaborative Tape Art! Get a look into the amazing world of large-scale, collaborative art-making and how you can bring these experiences to your community.
Tape Art's mural for Art Prize in 2015 is featured in the award-winning documentary More Art Upstairs. Here is a short clip.
The documentary explores the question who should determine what is good art in the setting of an art competition that gives the public the opportunity to vote for the winner. The documentary has been screened at the Hot Dog Film Festival (2017) and the Nantucket FIlm Festival (2017). MoreArtUpstairs.com
Community Tape Art
The Tape Art Crew works with communities to create collaborative art experiences that start difficult dialogues, provide groups of people a public voice, and help communities envision a better future together.
Here is a short video about Tape Art's collaboration with the Oishei Foundation, Cornell High Road Fellows, and the Lipsey Buffalo Architecture Center in June 2017. Teams transformed narratives about the social issues of Buffalo, NY into stories about solutions and social justice. View Project PDF
Tape Art Education & Workshops
We have over two decades of experience teaching in a wide range of educational settings, including special education. We have introduced Tape Art to over 50,000 first-time drawers.
Here is a video from a week-long residency in which a local high school was completely transformed with tape.
The content of school workshops can reinforce the curriculum students are learning in their classrooms. Here is an example of students illustrating history.

Corporate Art Education & Leadership Training
Good art-making processes are a mirror for good leadership practices. We have spent over 20 years training thousands of corporate leaders to be better collaborators, risk-takers, and innovators through art experiences. These workshops fuse business lessons with best-practice from the world of art.
This TEDx Providence Talk dives into how Tape Art workshops can be a powerful diagnostic tool for corporate leadership. Or read our article published in The Smart Manager. View Smart Manager Article PDF
