Exhibition ‘Butterflies and Plants: partners in evolution’

The permanent exhibition “Butterflies and Plants: partners in evolution” opened at the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum. Acclaimed by the public, it features a live butterfly house and accompanying panels inform on the coevolution of butterflies and plants, featuring several examples from nature. I was commissioned to produce illustrations of a monarch butterfly that were later mounted on three-dimensional 5 feet wide wire structures to display at the entrance to the exhibition hall. I also created the illustrations of moths and butterflies in the animations that played on the exhibition’s website.
