FEATURED PROJECTS . . .
With its bright, vibrant yellow color and organic, undulating shape, Tabachin Ribbon adds texture and interest to the urban landscape. It comes to Fort Worth after debuting in 2010 at Chicago’s prestigious Millennium Park, along with four other large-scale sculpture by the artist. As part of an invitational program and with funding support of CONACULA, Mexico’s National Council for Culture and Arts, Ms. Domenge created the sculptures with the intention of donating them to cities with significant public art collections in the United States. The City of Fort Worth was offered first choice by a selection committee that included Ms. Domenge and Millennium Park executive director Edward Uhlir. The committee found Fort Worth to have “a public that will enjoy the sculpture in a context that is inspiring and engaging, and where the sculpture can be placed in an environment that will benefit from the city’s cultural and historical value.”
Mexican artist Yvonne Domenge studied sculpture in Mexico City, Montreal, Canada and Washington D.C. in the United States. She has exhibited in more than 160 group and solo shows internationally and her artwork is included in the collections of the National Palace, the Modern Art Museum and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City, Mexico, and the Louvre Museum in Paris, France.
Her sculptures are also featured in the private and corporate collections of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Chase Manhattan Bank, Hewlett-Packard, Televisa, and the World Bank (Washington DC,) General Toyamura Center Abutagun ( Japan,) PG & Energy Services Company, Novell, Inc., and ChevronTexaco (California) and the House of Mexico in the Cité Universitaire, Paris. She was the selected sculptor for the International Olympic Sculptures Exhibition in Beijing, China in association with the 2008 Olympics.
A public dedication is planned for Wednesday, October 15th, as part of the City Employee's Hispanic Heritage Celebration. The artist will attend.
