San Juan Ridge Tapestry Project

Autumn Celebration On The Ridge

12 feet wide by 2.5 feet high, completed in 2009

The Ridge enjoys a variety of home-grown rituals and celebrations. Essentially private affairs, they are organized by one or more families with variations from year to year.  This tapestry, Celebrations: A Fall Gathering, depicts one such cherished event that has been arranged by one neighborhood for their families every year since 1971.
