2014 Artist in Residence: Bryant Terry

In celebration of the Year of Sustainability at Grace Cathedral, Bryant Terry – eco-chef, food justice activist and bestselling author – was invited by the Rt. Rev. Marc Handley Andrus to be Grace Cathedral’s 2014 Artist in Residence. Terry focuses on educating the general public, and especially children, on creating a healthy, ethical and sustainable food system. His work supports the belief that nourishing and satisfying meals for everyone, regardless of income, is a right, not a privilege.  His critically acclaimed cookbooks share family stories and history, and pair recipes with music, books and movies, creating a holistic experience of inclusive tradition, spirituality and community.

This fall, Terry joined us to add flavor and texture to Grace Cathedral’s Year of Sustainability and to engage us in community through a focus on food. During his residency he will create event-specific menus and introduce us to the brilliance of healthy, delicious and sustainable cuisine. Please join us as we celebrate our 2014 Artist in Residence with the special events below.

In celebration of 100 Years of Music at Grace Cathedral, our 2013 Artist in Residence was Anne Patterson, a renowned visual artist and one of the leading designers working in American theater and music today, who trained at Yale and London’s Slade School of Art. In her current work, she focuses on taking the visual arts into the core of the orchestral and classical music experience, engaging audiences through a synthesis of art and music, light and sound, space and self.
Our first artist in residence was noted playwright and actor Anna Deavere Smith, who was with us during January and February 2012. To see a retrospective of her residency, click here.


Anne Patterson was in residence throughout 2013, creating site-specific works. Her first engagement was Seeing the Voice a collaborative evening of visual art and music with renowned cellist Joshua Roman on Monday, March 11, 2013, followed by State of Grace with composer and conductor Paul Haas on October 23, 2013.

Graced With Light

As a part of 100 Years of Music at Grace Cathedral, visual artist Anne Patterson created Graced With Light, a stunning, music-inspired installation that incorporates Grace Cathedral’s vaulted ceiling arches and video projection. Ms. Patterson envisioned a series of light pathways, connecting heaven and earth, manifest as ribbons. The ribbons carry our prayers, dreams and wishes skyward, and, in turn, grace streams down the ribbons to us.
Graced With Light is constructed of nearly 20 miles of ribbon, and has been hand-assembled by Ms. Patterson and the Grace Cathedral community. The piece will be on view through the end of 2014.
Our 2013 Artist in Residence was Anne Patterson, a renowned visual artist.  View a slideshow of Graced with Light, the ribbons exhibit she designed and installed at the Cathedral.
