Event details

This ongoing program runs from Tuesday, Aug. 2, to Sunday, Oct. 2. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays

Plum Creek Nature Center is hosting this community art project, which features hundreds of origami butterflies hand folded by students at Chelsea Intermediate School in Frankfort from recycled book pages. Frankfort artist Jaime Maisuria, a Frankfort Arts Association board member, led the artistic collaboration. She gathered the books from the library, created the origami squares and assembled five panels to display the butterflies.

During the exhibit, a craft station will be available for visitors to make their own butterflies from recycled pages. Plum Creek Nature Center is an accessible facility.
