Wings in the City

Here is the WINGS IN THE CITY opening of 54 butterflies decorated by local artists.

These fiberglass forms became stunning works of art-- all to be auctioned off for resource to provide creative arts and materials for seriously ill children.

This is called WINGS OF HOPE. It's a nationwide organization.

The opening last night was a gala affair -- with gorgeous food, tuxs and gowns, big band orchestra, amazing warm temperature, and good company.

My butterfly sold BEFORE auction -- which was amazing.
I was thrilled and surprised.

Each sculpture had a donor -- and mine was E.M. Harris Construction.

The front is a BLUE MORPHO butterfly
The back is a MONARCH butterfly

I named my butterfly: BUTTERFLY FOR DANIELLE-- in honor of Danielle Barrier Harmon. Danielle was a talented and loving artist and college professor from Valdosta, GA. She was a wife, mother, artist, professor, friend, special soul. She is missed.

Many MANY people worked hard to make this event so successful!
