The Einstein Project’s 2008 Butterflies & Friends on Parade
Presented by Green Bay Packaging & Schreiber Foods, the 2008 Butterflies & Friends on Parade event is a community-wide art exhibit featuring the creative interpretations of artists on aluminum and fiberglass forms representing butterflies and frogs, and new this year, cranes which have been created from the ground up by the artists.
The pieces are located along the Fox River – from Leicht Park on the west side, south to the Walnut Street bridge, and continuing south on the east side of the river along the Fox River Trail.
Artists, both amateur and professional, from around Wisconsin created 32 fantastic pieces such as 57 Monarch (butterfly designed to look like a 1957 Chevy), Blue Boy the Blue Heron (plate steel crane) and Panamanian Golden Frog (a critically endangered frog).
The works will be on display throughout the summer. The finale to the Parade will be a September 23rd auction where the art pieces will be sold, with all proceeds benefiting The Einstein Project, a non-profit school-business-community partnership dedicated to improving the quality of science education for K-8 students in the state.
Complete maps listing the locations of the pieces are available at The Einstein Project, and will be placed in businesses throughout the area in the coming weeks. For a complete list of artists and locations, go to The Einstein Project website at www.einsteinproject.org.
