Monarch Butterfly

In order to complement our seasonal programming, catch our monarch butterfly (Danaces plexippus) with a 10-foot wingspan!

Specially commissioned by the Museum in celebration of the Butterfly Pavilion, the beautiful hand-painted wings and costumes were created by a husband and wife team Robi and Ann Mukherjee.

You can see more of the Mukherjees' work at www.aurasilks.com.
