The Butterfly Effect
Transformation and Rebirth
A collaboration by: Lauren Comly, Sarah Pfohl, John Cardone, James Redenbaugh, Michelle Molloy, Charlette Williams
The Butterfly Effect presents a variety of interpretations of the butterfly structure and the butterfly as a symbol—as addressed by contemporary visual artists—and will include work by local artists, Syracuse University students and professors, and Syracuse youth. The centerpiece of “The Butterfly Effect” is a living butterfly habitat constructed by SU students using materials reclaimed from local sites. The interior butterfly garden provides the opportunity for exhibition visitors to observe living butterflies while surrounded by artworks that explore or feature the butterfly metaphorically.
