Seasonal Experiences

 

Vuelo Sin Fronteras / Flight Without Borders

November 12, 2022–January 8, 2023 | Taft Historic House

This year, the Taft invited three local artists— Gabriela Falconi-Piedra, Pedro Moreno, and Fabiola Rodríguez Ornelas—to decorate a six-foot Christmas tree in the museum’s Duncanson Foyer. The artists were born in Ecuador, Bolivia, and Mexico, respectively. Their installation features a fantastic array of paper and fabric birds, butterflies, and flowers, and a paper nest to explore the concepts of migration, belonging, and diversity.

The Taft collaborated on this project with Wave Pool Art Center’s Welcome Project, which seeks to empower Cincinnati’s refugee and immigrant population while connecting, assisting, and inspiring all through art and food.
