Philippe Petit: The Ribbon Walk
In The Ribbon Walk, Philippe Petit (of World Trade Center fame) will walk a high wire through the ribbons of Divine Pathways in a one-night only special event at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The evening will also include live music.
Divine Pathways is a stunning, site-specific textile installation created by artist Anne Patterson for the vaulted Nave of the Cathedral. The more than 1,100 ribbons include the hopes, prayers, and dreams of organizations and communities from across the Morningside Heights neighborhood, New York City, and the Episcopal Diocese of New York. Divine Pathways is on view through June 2024.
The interaction of the work of these two great artists is something not to be missed.
Please note: For the safety of the performer, audience members must remain seated throughout the aerial presentation. Viewers must be 8 years or older to attend this event.
