Butterfly Statue

Support Art & Science! Butterflies & Friends on Parade is a community-wide summer celebration of art and science presented by The Einstein Project and supported by area businesses, foundations, organizations, and artists.

Art pieces ere on display in downtown Green Bay during the summer of 2008, with a fall auction where the pieces were sold to benefit science education. (There was a $10 admission fee which included light
hors d'oeuvres for the auction.) This is a wonderful tradition that supports great science while providing a lively attraction in the community.

This Spring (2008) I got to be a part of The Einstein Project: Butterflies & Friends on Parade Project. I covered my butterfly with roughly 38 pounds of world coins. Included in that 38 lbs were also many US state and bicentennial quarters, US bicentennial fifty cent pieces a few US pennies. My butterfly sold for $1,900. Very exciting auction.

It is amazing what you can tell about countries by what is on their money. Each coin is a piece of art in its own right. The detail of the art on each coin and what each country decides to use to represent itself to the world is amazing. This piece is dedicated to my daughter Natalya who has changed my world for the better since we brought her home from Russia during Christmas 2006.
