In celebration of 100 Years of Music at the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, artist in residence Anne Patterson has created Graced With Light, a music and stained glass-inspired installation that features nearly 20 miles of multicolored ribbons cascading from the church’s vaulted ceiling arches. The first part of the project took over a week to assemble – four days just to attach the ribbons to the ropes from which they are suspended. I got to see this in person last week and let me say, it was one of the most magnificent sights I’ve seen. I could have spent the entire day in the cathedral, listening to the organs play and peacefully staring up at the streaming, stain ribbons. If you happen to be in San Francisco before the end of February, I highly suggest checking it out!
