BUTTERFLY SCULPTURE This public art sculpture was born out of the Makeshop Appalachia program through the Charleston Boys and Girl’s Club and MESH design. During the program young people were tasked with creating projects that could make Charleston a better place. A participant in the program created a design concept for a Butterfly sculpture that glows. Members of the community were asked to come visit with the participants as they presented their ideas. The Office of Public (Jeff Pierson) served as a mentor to Zoey and we decided that we should make the sculpture a reality. This prompted the early discussions of making it an event that would be full of art and family activities.
