Duck® brand duct tape hosted a gala event at the Columbus Zoo on September 20th, 2003 announcing three new colors of duct tape. There were over 60 incredibly colorful lifesized and larger- than-life animals made with Duck® duct tape by students at Columbus College of Art and Design, the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cuyahoga Community College and Todd Scott, Canadian Duct Tape Sculptor. The colorful animals were an exciting way to show off Duck® brand's large palette of colors and helped introduce Steel Blue, Gold, and Maroon duct tape. You can see all of the colors and vote on the new colors here.
