At the groundbreaking ceremony for Siteman Cancer Center at Northwest HealthCare, guests were encouraged to write messages of inspiration and hope on colored macramé ribbons.
The ribbons have special messages from 144 individuals, including testimonials, letters of encouragement, quotes, verses, and praise to Siteman Cancer Center.
Artist Samantha Bryant started by sketching out the design and organizing the ribbons by color. She then wove each ribbon together, creating a colorful tapestry of strength, hope, and resilience for the center’s community room.
The piece is a beautiful manifestation of the power of many voices, stories, and lives rooted in the community.
