Welcome to my project "Caught on Tape! New Orleans Makes 300".  I've created over 60 pieces of tape art focused on the history of the city of New Orleans from 1718 to 2018.  Each composition is made of colored duct tape that has been sliced, diced, and manipulated on wood to create an image.  

This is both an art project and a history project,  and the ultimate aim of the exhibition is to highlight the remarkable people and events that have shaped New Orleans.  The timeline begins with the Native Americans living and trading on Bayou St John and goes on to portray scenes from each era of the city's history all the way to our most recent historic event:  the election of the city's first female mayor.  

Please feel free to come see these in person at the two events listed above.  ~ Justin  Lundgren

THIS IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND MY THOUGHTS ON THE HISTORY, THE ART, AND THE APPROACH TO THE PROJECT ARE STILL EVOLVING.  IF YOU HAVE CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK,  SEND IT MY WAY VIA A MESSAGE BELOW.

ALSO, I'M LOOKING FOR VENUES TO DISPLAY THIS RATHER ENORMOUS PROJECT. A VENUE IN NEW ORLEANS WOULD BE THE MOST OBVIOUS CHOICE,  BUT I THINK THE PROJECT WOULD SHOW WELL IN A NUMBER OF OTHER CITIES.   MANY OF THE PIECES ARE 4X5 FEET OR LARGER AND THE PROJECT WILL REQUIRE A FAIRLY LARGE SPACE TO DISPLAY IN ITS ENTIRETY. IF YOU KNOW OF A SPACE OR INSTITUTION OR VENUE THAT WOULD WORK, LET ME KNOW!
