Location Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Ribbons VI is a public art work by artist Stephen Fischer. It was installed in the Menomonee Valley in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1989.[1]


The sculpture has an abstract form that combines an open circle and a squiggle forged in Cor-ten steel. The circle rests directly on the ground, and the squiggle rises from its top, reaching out vertically and slightly diagonally.[2] The fabrication style is consistent with other works by the artist.[3]
