The Tape Art Crew is back on WTAMU’s campus. And they’re taking over Mary Moody Northen Hall for the second time to kick off the “Best of the Best” season—a subscription series honoring 10 years of giving. The artists, Michael Townsend and Leah Smith, are a nationally-acclaimed pair who build on an artistic expression that began in 1989 in Providence, Rhode Island. Together, they have created more than 500 murals—and this will be the largest they’ve ever done. “Interactive,” the mural, invites student participation and will be finished on Friday. And, in typical tape-art fashion, the mural will be taken down within 48 hours of its completion. Tape art is an interesting project that has brought people together for more than 30 years, including Canadian, where Townsend and Smith have “taped the town” in 2017 and 2018. Their art was “captured” for the first time in a semipermanent exhibit at The Citadelle Gallery earlier this year, called “It Tapes a Village.” Their next Canadian project will be “Out of the Blue, a Tape Art Experience,” scheduled for Sept. 27 through Nov. 16.
