Art & Seek - Haughville Butterflies

I’ve painted an assortment of black and white butterflies along the east pathway of IPS Wendell Phillips School 63, and with help from the students, they’ve added they’re own painting to them. On the west side of the school, in full Art and Seek fashion, I’ve painted more than 12 hydrophobic butterflies hidden along the sidewalks. These hidden butterflies can be located simply by wetting the ground to reveal their locations. So on a sunny day, bring some water and happy hunting! View the video here...

Thanks to Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc.Arts Council of Indianapolis, and Haughville Strong for making this happen.
