Tapescape Opens at MADE for Kids

Monday, June 3, 2024
This event has already passed.

The Magic House, MADE for Kids will be hosting an exhibit of its own as TapeScape, an innovative playscape made almost entirely out of packing tape, will open for play on June 3 in the makerspace. Kids can crawl, climb and slide through this playful, STEAM-inspired exhibit. TapeScape is sure to stick with them as one of the most amazing forts ever built!

With the assistance of volunteers over three days and using almost 15 miles of tape, designer and artist Eric Lennarston harnesses the strength of tape to form unique installations that are strong enough for visitors to climb on and explore. He has completed TapeScape installations around the world and the exhibit is sure to spark a sense of wonder and thought regarding the unexpected use of tape throughout. A multidisciplinary STEAM and community engagement experience, TapeScape is a one-of-a-kind play environment. Unique to the installation coming to MADE for Kids is that it has the potential to transform into different configurations and layouts while adding makerspace elements such as lights, sound, and art.

TapeScape is sponsored by Graybar and opens for play at MADE for Kids on Monday, June 3. The exhibit is included with regular admission to MADE for Kids, located at 5127 Delmar, Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63108. For more information, visit magichouse.org
