It’s hard to improve on the interior design of a building as hallowed and grandiose as Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, famed for its stained-glass windows, two labyrinths, and mosaics by Jan Henryk De Rosen. But New York-based artist Anne Patterson managed to make the space even more magical with her installation “Graced With Light,” made from 20 miles of silk ribbons suspended from the cathedral’s vaulted ceiling arches. In blue, green, red, and maroon, the ribbons reflect light from the windows like shimmering celestial curtains. Hundreds of community members were invited to write their prayers, hopes, and wishes on the red ribbons, sending them toward heaven.
