These elegant chiffon scarves are a limited series of print capturing the original black and white drawing of the center piece of the Love Pavilion by artist Ziui Chen Vance. The Love Pavilion was Chen Vance’s gift to FRIEDA and the community, the transformation of FRIEDA’s glass façade into a church-like stained glass artwork with hundreds of panels.
Chen designed the installation and invited the public to give it life by coloring each panel. Chen “imagines her work as an inter-generational installation in that the animals are representative of different life stages. The monkey exemplifies the first twenty (1-20) years of life, the ram is our twenties to forties (20-40’s), the cat our forties to sixties (40-60’s), and the peafowl our sixties and beyond as a “centenarian” (60-100’s).”

Chen who recently moved with her family from Michigan to Philadelphia applied to the FRIEDA call for artists this past September and was selected to exhibit in the curated show VOICES. After organizing a workshop and participating in many FRIEDA community events, Chen is gifting the Love Pavilion to her adoptive FRIEDA family.
