Create at Home: Tape Art

Since we can't welcome you to the museum for our monthly Second Saturdays Are for Families program, we invite you to create at home with us! Each week, we'll post a supply list, followed by a step-by-step activity guide to make an artistic creation with materials found in your own home.

Opposites attract in this week's project, Tape Art! Inspired by two very different sculptures by artist Carol Bove, we're making works of art that combine the straight, geometric shapes in one with the swirly, curving lines in the other.

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, April 17 on our Facebook and Instagram for a step-by-step video tutorial to make your tape creation. You can also visit for more information and past projects!

In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
