What is the Butterfly Festival?

Amazing, aluminum sculpture butterflies have been created by student and local artists for display at companies, churches and private homes in our community. The butterflies measure 5’wide x 3.25’deep x 4.75’ tall. Proceeds raised from the sale of butterflies benefit the Visual Arts Program, providing free art classes to underserved students. The classes help fuel the minds of young students and provide a safe, nurturing and inclusive environment for them to be creative and thrive.

The Butterfly Festival was first conceived in 2017 to boost available scholarship funds and to showcase the talents of budding student artists while beautifying the community. According to Robert Westheimer, Newspring’s founder, “We’ve been thrilled to see the community engagement driven by this initiative and excited that butterflies are finding homes in places where we hope they inspire and engage.”

Butterflies are priced at $10,000. Artwork for a butterfly can be selected from available student artwork or customized with your design. Each butterfly is sealed and weatherproofed before delivery to your location.
