Tape Art, a collective of artists based in Providence, Rhode Island, will begin the installation of Buffalo Caverns, 2014, a drawing made with painter’s tape on the exterior walls of the Buffalo and Erie County Public Library. Three to four artists will work over the course of five days to create a massive, immersive temporary drawing.

All are invited to see the artists at work. The installation will be completed on Thursday, August 21. The installation will remain on view until Friday, August, 29, 2014.
