GREEN BAY - Butterflies popped up in the Green Bay area Monday and they brought their friends.
The Einstein Project's "Wild About Science featuring Butterflies and Friends" sculptures are now on display.
The 21 pieces can be found at the Brown County Central Library, the Kress Family Branch in De Pere, and the Weyers-Hilliard Branch in Howard.
Many of the art pieces were created by amateurs and professionals from around Wisconsin.
"We're recognizing there's a nature deficit for a lot of kids where they don't have a lot of opportunities to get outdoors and observe nature and so I think the fact that the Einstein Project can bring these things into the classroom make it a hands-on interactive thing to get kids interested and to show them the relevance of science and math,” said Jeff Benson, artist.
The Butterflies and Friends will be on display until September 19th. From there, they will be sold at an auction with proceeds benefiting The Einstein Project.
