Butterfly Art to Make a Fossil Fuel Statement in New Haven
Creations are due by January 20 for a Metamorphosis Street Art installation.
The winter streets of New Haven will get a little more colorful in January. Thousands of hand-made butterflies will be dispersed throughout the city in a massive outdoor art installation, and the public is being asked to get involved.
WNPR's Ray Hardman spoke recently with Chris Schweitzer from WalkBikeTransit New Haven, the organization sponsoring the butterfly art installation project. Chris is program director for the New Haven/Leon Sister City Project.
Instructions for making butterflies can be found here, preferably from recycled materials. WalkBikeTransit is inviting residents to consider a "metamorphosis" to less fossil fuel/car dependent transportation.
Schweitzer said the deadline for collecting them is Monday, January 20.
