ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis public art project featuring fiberglass butterflies will benefit a hospice program for children.
Officials of BJC pediatric hospice and palliative care program announced the project Tuesday.
More than 50 large, fiberglass butterflies will be painted by local artists. They'll be unveiled in October in Forest Park, then stored for the winter before going on display in spring 2011 throughout the area.
The butterflies will be sold by auction in May 2011.
St. Louis artist Mary Engelbreit has called on artists to create whimsical designs for the butterflies.
