Treefort Music Fest Tarps Picadas 2014

I was one of three artists selected to produce ephemeral public art for the Treefort Music Fest 2014. For the event I created seven 8′ X 10′ two layered polyvinyl “tarps picadas” which were stapled, and taped with colored Duck Tape. They were hung outside on the back wall of the Record Exchange in Boise, and stayed there with only one serious interruption for 6 months from March to mid-August.
