Okay...What Exactly is That Yellow Ball Downtown?

Donated by Mexican artist Yvonne Domenge, Tabachin Ribbon sits at 1000 Throckmorton St. in front of the Municipal Court in downtown Fort Worth. The bright yellow sculpture arrived in 2014 during a Hispanic heritage celebration and was inspired by the Tabachin tree, which is native to Mexico. Tabachin Ribbon is one of six sculptures created by the artist for a temporary exhibition in Chicago. It was always the artist’s intention to donate each of the pieces to cities with significant public art collections, and Fort Worth was offered first choice.
