Military families tie yellow ribbons around trees to support soldiers returning home.
Expanding this tradition as an artist, military mom, and veteran’s wife, Pamela Alderman designed The Yellow Ribbon Project to honor our veterans.
At the initial Voices installation at ArtPrize 2021, visitors in Grand Rapids, Michigan, wrote 10,000 yellow ribbon notes to encourage deployed soldiers and veterans.
Since then, this successful initiative continues to activate new creative spaces and connect individuals with veterans. The responsive piece, in collaboration with [HAS HEART], also creates a local sense of community, as we rally behind our veterans and troops.

- 350 Yellow Ribbons
- 1 Ribbon Storage Basket
- Black Sharpie Markers
- 6-foot Yellow Mesh
