The endangered Mission Blue Butterfly, and the vanishing native lupine they need to survive are celebrated by the art installed in the new Brisbane Public Library in 2021.
The goal was to make art that illuminated the interrelationship between the Mission Blue Butterfly, and the vanishing native lupine.
The artist collaborated with the architect, the librarian, and the city.
