“The Butterfly Project” Traveling Exhibit
Friday, Mar. 11, 2016 – Friday, Mar. 31, 2017
Over the course of 20 years, The Butterfly Project has fired the imagination of millions of people and has resulted in the creation of more than 1.5 million stunning butterflies, handmade in every conceivable material, color and form. Created by children across the globe, the butterflies evoke powerful emotion. They create a chain reaction that changes the way people feel, then challenges the way they think and finally, inspires them to act.
Beginning March 11, six traveling displays will go on view at various public spaces around Houston through 2017. For locations and viewing hours and additional information about the displays, visit www.hmh.org/butterflies.
