Butterfly Lane Organized Nick Sweetman

🦋🦋🦋 Butterfly Lane Organized by Nick Sweetman

I’m catching up with some more art projects from last summer… This was from the end of June during a heatwave.

This is the second year (I believe) that Nick Sweetman has organized this event. It’s funded by David Suzuki Foundation in honour of National Pollinator Week @davidsuzukifdn “dedicated to protecting the diversity of nature”. Nick gets artists together to create an outdoor gallery featuring butterflies …. who are important pollinators – (as I have learned from this project).

Artist.. in order.. and if I get them wrong.. blame Nick… because all this info is from his account.

From his interview for Blogto:

“There are a million issues that we need to address as a society and probably butterfly habitat is not, for most people, at the top of the list of priorities,” says Sweetman, who personally went door-to-door getting permission from every owner of the properties painted.

“However, as artists, we are always looking for ways, big and small, that we can make a contribution to a good cause,” he continues.

“If a few children see these walls and feel joy and wonder at flowers and butterflies, that can inspire, and if enough people feel that way, eventually that is how you affect real change.”
