FAVIANNA RODRIGUEZ’S ‘BUTTERFLY EFFECT’ TO ADVOCATE FOR FREE, BOUNDLESS ART
Favianna Rodriguez originally created an artwork of monarch butterflies to advocate for freedom of migration back in 2012.
Seven years later, her butterflies are the namesake for an on-campus panel discussion.
“The Butterfly Effect: Activism & Transformation through the Arts” will be hosted by the Visual and Performing Arts Education Program in Kaufman Hall on Wednesday, with Rodriguez, an artist and cultural creator, as the featured guest.
