Duct tape portrait sticking with ArtPrize-goers


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Kerry Mott's ArtPrize entry is a 14.5-foot long, 3-foot tall panel that shows some of the biggest names in late night TV — and it's all made from duct tape.

"People do not understand that it’s duct tape until I really explain how I do it and what it is," Mott said.

Mott said it took her 20 rolls of duct tape, three pairs of scissors, lots of coffee and Netflix, and around 2,500 hours to put together "Kings of Late Night." It seems to have paid off: Her duct tape design is one of the talks of ArtPrize 10.

She said she meticulously cut some 200,000 pieces of tape to create the faces of eight famous late night hosts. Among them are four hosts of NBC's "The Tonight Show," including current host Jimmy Fallon.
