PECO Family Jams: The Art of Butterfly Wings

Sunday, October 10th 2021

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

The average lifespan of a butterfly is less than a month so employees at the Philadelphia Insectarium routinely collect butterfly wings from the grounds of their 7000 square-foot Butterfly Pavilion. This month, the Insectarium helps us transform these naturally occurring masterpieces into small, exquisite pieces of art. Meet some of the Insectarium’s favorite critters face to face or use a scavenger hunt to discover the many animals found in Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens’ mosaics.
