Butterflies for Peace

This installation was very difficult to conceive and install because of its scale. Close to 200 butterflies of varying sizes were installed on the exterior facade of the Peace Center to commemorate its 25th anniversary.  Each stainless steel butterfly is individually folded and torched to create its iridescence.  The marble facade is a beautiful canvas for these butterflies.
