Religion and modern art come together in a gorgeous spatial installation
It seems like design and modern art have not been able to find common ground with the church since they both clearly belong to the area of the profane. Yet, it would be foolish not to consider these giant cathedrals and churches as major pieces of art, massive spatial volumes that artists would dream to inhabit. And that’s exactly what artist Anne Patterson has been allowed to do in the Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. If you’re in the area before the end of February, you will have the chance to admire Graced with Light, an installation of 20 miles of cascading satin ribbons whose colors are inspired by the church’s stained glass. The temporary alliance is definitely magical and practically (dare we say it!) divine.
