Participatory Art

Snow, rain, and wind have not been able to chase away the butterflies outside FRIEDA. On the contrary, more blue butterflies of all shapes and sizes still gather even one year later on the canopy at FRIEDA’s entrance.
What was meant to be an uplifting, creative collaboration during the start of the quarantine last year has not lost its symbolic power of renewal, hope, and luck!

We invite you to continue with this project, for now by working from your home and hopefully soon in small group sessions at FRIEDA.
Please pick up your set of printed cards: Monday – Sunday: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm at FRIEDA, 320 Walnut Street.

Select your favorite images from either side and cut out the images. When you complete your task, please return the butterflies you cut to FRIEDA. You will be able to see the project grow on one of your walks through the neighborhood.

If you would like to document the process, just take a photo and share it with us.
