Description

On Saturday, June 29th*, join Vice Mayor Elizabeth Bennett-Parker in painting a Social Butterfly mural on the side of Bloomer's in Old Town.

Artist Tasha Wahl created The Butterfly Effect and Social Butterflies to promote public art and philanthropy. Through September 8, visitors will be able to take a picture within the butterfly and select a charity of their choice (from a list of more than 150) to receive a donation. The Butterfly Effect recognizes that we can be the change we want to see in the world by facilitating small acts of kindness, encouraging generosity, and promoting creativity.

Put on some sunscreen and closed-toe shoes and join us for a couple hours of painting as we bring more public art to Alexandria! (*In the event of unfortunate weather, we will reschedule for June 30th. We will email all attendees if we plan to postpone.)

Please review the following video before June 29th to see how the installation will work: https://vimeo.com/219338414
