Students and faculty of St. Andrew's-Sewanee School have begun a six-week collaborative art project. Starting in the art gallery and spilling out into the halls and windows of the academic buildings, the community will create a series of tape art images and murals using only blue painter's tape.
Graffiti Gallery '19 is the second in a series of all-school art projects. The SAS Art Department was inspired by the vibrant culture springing up globally around tape art and murals through projects such as the city-wide Tape Over Berlin in Germany and the enormous tape mural on the exterior of The Brooks Museum in Memphis. The students and faculty responded to the first all-school project with vibrant creativity and enthusiasm.
The public is invited to come by and watch the work in progress. Artists will be working M-F between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. through April 26. The 10:30 a.m. work periods will likely be especially exciting.
The SAS Gallery is located in the center of Simmonds Building at 290 Quintard Road, Sewanee, Tenn. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.–3 p.m., and by appointment. Contact Gallery Director Julie Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
