March 5, 2021, 5:30 p.m. ET, virtual opening reception
Hundreds of volunteers from across the country painted, colored, and created this exhibition of butterflies—a symbol of life often used to depict the organ donation and transplantation journey. Many of the butterflies include a donor tribute or thank you, while other creations are simply beautiful and inspirational. We’ll share a close up look at many of these unique creations during the opening art reception on March 5 in honor of those who gave the Gift of Life and to celebrate those who received the gift.
Elvin Floyd is known as the butterfly artist. His butterfly art is created with real butterflies and moths from Peru—home to 20% of the world’s butterfly population. The butterflies used to create his framed art were farm-raised in a conservation effort, and live out their entire lives naturally. Elvin’s 8-year-old daughter Sydney received her angel wings June 21, 2017. Her donation saved the life of a 3-year-old.
