About the Installation
On August 27th, Chicago-born artist Anna Dominguez, widely recognized as the Queen of Tape, will complete work on a one-of-a-kind original tape art installation with 360 CHICAGO Observation Deck's 94th-floor windows as her canvas.
Titled "Fix You," the window installation features Dominguez’s character, Queen, an icon of personal reflection and one which she hopes will provide a voice for those working through mental health struggles, specifically depression.
Dominguez’s technique involves using all types and colors of Duck Brand tape, some reflective for a visual accent. Her creations can take over 300 hours and between four to six weeks to complete.
Anna's work as the Queen of Tape has gained a following from celebrities including Megan Rapinoe, Kaley Cuoco, Rachel Ray, Brian Urlacher, and Serena Williams.
Visit the Gallery
At Elevate Gallery, located on the south side of the observation deck, visitors can view a retrospective of Dominguez’s artistic achievements over the past 10 years, with many original works on public display for the first time.
Images of previous pieces from the Queen of Tape will be available for sale with profits benefitting NoStigmas, a global peer-to-peer support network built by and for those whose lives are affected by mental illness.

About the Artist
Born and raised in Chicago, Anna Dominguez studied Studio Art and Teaching at Dominican University. She discovered a unique ability to create art using only tape and has stuck to that passion for the past 11 years. Early works were inspired, predominantly, by women’s sports.
A lifelong athlete, Dominquez was motivated to create images that showcase female empowerment. That focus opened avenues for Dominquez’s work with top sports brands and organizations including Nike and U.S. Soccer. In the near future, Dominguez looks to grow into the world of street art.
