“Ribbons” consists of twenty four fabric art panels from over 40 artists around the country. Some are based on themes or cover art from books by Hispanic authors; others directly represent aspects of the immigrant experience. “Ribbons” was displayed at the UUA General Assemblies in Louisville, KY (2013), Providence, RI (2014), Portland, OR (2015) and Columbus, OH (2016). In between, panels have traveled to over 60 venues (UU congregations, Humanist meetings, art galleries, etc), and have been viewed by over 14,000 people. More than 200 individuals (mostly UUs and humanists) have been involved in the fabrication, curation, display and financial sponsorship of the exhibit.
Following four years on the road, and the wear and tear of being repeatedly set up and taken down, “Ribbons” is transitioning to permanent sites around the country. These four panels are now on display at the Brevard UU Church, 2185 Meadowlane Ave, West Melbourne, FL 32904:
