DIY Club Creates Beautiful Butterfly

 

In honor of the Latino Heritage Month assembly, the DIY Club has created a painting of a butterfly. The painting has been installed in the library.

 

We were inspired by the contemporary artist and activist Favianna Rodriguez. If you want to know more about Favianna and the Migration Is Beautiful campaign please check out this three part series by Voice of Art on youtube: 

Voice of Art: Migration is Beautiful, Pt. 1

Voice of Art: Migration is Beautiful, Pt. 2

Voice of Art: Migration is Beautiful, Pt. 3

We invite all staff and students to take a picture in front of the painting. We want to share our support for undocumented migrants and support for humane immigration policy.
