Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. — Nathaniel Hawthorne
A new art exhibit has taken flight in Lakeland. Kaleidoscope, Butterflies in Flight is 88 decorated butterflies installed around downtown Lakeland. The goal of the butterflies is to “enrich cultural activity while raising funds for the construction of CommonGround, a fully inclusive play experience for children of varying abilities.”
The butterflies will be in place until April 27, 2007 when 34 will be auctioned off to benefit CommonGround and other local charities.
