RANCHO CORDOVA, CA (MPG) - TAPIGAMI took over the revitalized Mills Station Arts and Cultural Center in Rancho Cordova last week – and it did not disappoint. About 100 people of all ages enjoyed a ribbon cutting followed by a memorable reception. Wine and hors d’oeuvres were on the menu but the main course was the countless impressive pieces of art strategically placed throughout the building, leaving each guest to explore and discover their personal favorites.
TAPIGAMI is a contemporary art form created by local Sacramento artist Danny Scheible. “First attracted to masking tape because of its versatile, accessible, and malleable nature, Scheible used the unlikely material to create large-scale installations and create an accessible and interactive art form,” according to his bio. Since then his art has become award winning and he has written several instructional style books, promoting not only his work, but the style of art itself.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was also in honor of the reopening of the Mills Station (MACC) itself. “We have worked to find a way to create an arts exhibit and performance space for the building, but it has been difficult to get it off the ground,” said Rancho Cordova Mayor Linda Budge. “So we are very excited for re-introducing the building to the community and to begin using it as we have always intended.”
From Star Wars to Rick and Morty, Scheible’s unique form of art resides in a category of its own. If you missed the MACC grand opening or last weekend’s receptions, be sure to catch them this weekend, March 10-11, from noon to 6 p.m. Mills Station is located at 10191 Mills Station Road. Admission is free.
