“Ribbons of Light” Brightens Downtown

January 25, 2023

A New Temporary Artwork by Jacob Stanley Illuminates the Park Pacific Apartments Parking Garage at Tucker and Pine

Ribbons of Light is a sculpture of LED tentacle-like lines of light that engulfs the corner of the Park Pacific Apartments parking garage at Tucker Street and Pine Street by St. Louis artist Jacob Stanley. The work is visible as lines of color many stories above the street throughout the day and glowing lines at night. It will be on view through the end of 2023.

Stanley’s installation explores the dynamics of movement, balance and light on the parking garage using commonly found utilitarian materials and techniques. The light sculpture merges and juxtaposes with the surrounding urban fabric and uses the details of the site to reward viewers from multiple vantage points. Stanley hopes that the elegant movement of the cascading lights will interrupt the rigid grid of the city and spark a sense of curiosity in those who view the work.

Ribbons of Light is part of InSITE STL a collection of temporary art installations sited throughout Downtown St. Louis presented by the Regional Arts Commission and Greater St. Louis, Inc. The installations, created by area artists, explore Downtown St. Louis and the possibilities in our region’s core neighborhood.
