Tag & Repeat x2 is a site-specific project completed in 2010 as a part of Artspace New Haven’s Summer Apprenticeship Program. Twelve high school students, three interns, and Master Artist Cat Balco worked together to create two large works: a large-scale public piece including 6 painted banners installed in a New Haven park and an interior wall painting at Artspace. In addition, student apprentices completed a thematically related educational program including field trips & and studio projects. Connecting interior and exterior spaces and connecting individuals with community, Tag & Repeat x2 enlivens the promise of transformation that art continues to hold.
