TapeScape School Programs

TapeScape
Programs available from May 11 – June 28, 2019

To coincide with the opening of TapeScape, the Children’s Museum presents a series of curriculum-linked school programs individually tailored for grade levels N-5.

This summer, experience TapeScape – a unique play environment and creative art installation! Custom-designed by artist Eric Lennartson, TapeScape is an interactive indoor landscape made entirely out of plastic wrap and packing tape stretched over a huge metal frame. Strong enough to handle hundreds of energetic kids every day, the smooth and springy surfaces will curve and twist with your students’ movements. Exploring this unusual and unpredictable environment is sure to spark kids’ creative learning!
