This national fine art print project involves enlisting the talents of well known artists to produce a high-end boxed set of fine art prints. Sale proceeds would support the National Butterfly Center in Mission, Texas, a hotbed of… · More butterfly activity in the Northern Hemisphere. The Center needs ongoing financial support to operate and expand on-the-ground habitat for butterflies along the Rio Grande. Funding would be needed to launch the project, which involves engaging artists and professional partners, filming the artists speaking about the project and their printmaking activities on behalf of the project, filming staff at the Center and founder Jeffrey Glassberg of the North American Butterfly Association discussing butterfly ecology and the Center, developing the boxed set itself in terms of design (with possibly a well-known author introduction), the development of a traveling exhibition (including educational components about art, printmaking, butterflies, and conservation), and the like. This will result in a traveling exhibition, documentary, public speaking engagements and income generation for the Center in Mission, Texas. This project is high visibility, educational, and it would be ideal for a sponsor(s) interested in supporting conservation and being associated with a very high class enterprise.
