In reference to the song "Tie a Yellow Ribbon 'round the Ole Oak Tree" by Tony Orlando; The Yellow Ribbon Project is a community art movement that involves “Fiber Bombing” trees with yellow cord/ribbon. The goal of the project is to create awareness of veterans’ homelessness. Community artist, Macrame Momma, will lead a ribbon knotting session for volunteer groups and organizations.
The original project is curated by Art & History Museums – Maitland in conjunction with its current exhibition, Solider's Home: Veterans' Art in Central Florida, which closes on January 6, 2019. The Central Florida Yellow Ribbon Project is working in collaboration with the UCF Community Veterans History Project and the Veterans Academic Resource Center to lead a donation drive to collect non-perishable food, clothing and toiletry items for our local veterans through The Homeless Services Network of Central Florida.
