A group of young artists from Avalon Intermediate will get an intensive jump start into the world of public art as part of The Dowse Art Museum’s contribution to Common Ground. Local public art team Erica Duthie and Struan Ashby will introduce collaborative tape art mural making in a series of workshops, culminating in a public mural on the exterior façade of The Dowse Art Museum on 6 March.
The mural is a temporary work created in one day and taken down the next.
All are welcome to be a part of the public rip down of their mural that will be a part of the closing ceremony on 7 March.
Tape Art are a Hutt based art group who travel the world making magic with tape. Forerunners of the now vibrant field of Tape Art, Erica Duthie and Struan Ashby developed their signature style of blue toned tape drawn silhouettes with the life cycle of a day. They have been practicing for 13 years, creating tape art in festivals and residencies throughout New Zealand and overseas.
