Location: Kennedy Plaza
Installation: Temporary installation for PIAF, July 2015
These large-scale CatFish creations by Tape Art are imaginative, engaging works swimming high above the Providence International Arts Festival—the largest public art installation in Rhode Island history. As an art form that is immediate, accessible and, by nature, temporary, it makes a powerful statement about the role of creative expression in our daily lives.
“It gives people a chance to appreciate and talk about art on terms that they are really comfortable with, because the medium is accessible.” – Michael Townsend, Tape Art
Tape Art is both a group of artists and the medium in which they work. They create large-scale public works that are designed to unite communities through a shared process. Tape Artists have been invited into schools, cities, hospitals, and corporations, and their work has appeared on walls all over the world.
