The Graced With Light installation reinterprets the art of stained glass. Although loosely based on the latter, people will be hard pressed not to think of such a tradition considering that the art installation overtakes the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. It is comprised of 20 miles of ribbon that cascades from its lofty ceilings.
Created by New York-based artist Anne Patterson, the Graced With Light installation consists of colors inspired by stained glass, hence the comparison. Taking months to prepare, it took Patterson and the Grace Cathedral community eight days to actually hand-assemble the project. It also boasts music and video projection. Patterson envisioned it as "a series of light pathways, connecting heaven and earth, manifest as ribbons. The ribbons carry our prayers, dreams and wishes skyward, and, in turn, grace streams down the ribbons to us."
