*** Fall 2020 Update ***
The butterflies were reduced in quantity and served as a wall-based display as a bridge between summer and fall.
This project was started before the first COVID19 shutdowns of Spring 2020. I started the construction of the butterflies in March, finished them at-home during the shutdown, and they were installed by my phenomenal managers Liz Bernhardt and Colleen Burke before the store re-opened in June.
The butterfly wings were sent pre-cut, but were painted by hand in 3 color stories, then attached to create a 3D "flight" effect.
