Downtown Butterfly Art Installation Project

In an effort to beautify Downtown Pacific Grove, honor the beginning of the Monarch Butterfly Season and bring energy and color to downtown, The Downtown Business Improvement District, with cooperation from the Pacific Grove Art Center, Artisana Gallery and Butterfly Gift Shop, is debuting an art installation project featuring our local artist’s vision of this timeless Pacific Grove icon.

A total of 50 of the painted, wood butterflies will be attached to each of the light poles throughout Downtown until the end of the wintering season. Locals and visitors will be able to find the butterflies through an interactive map, then vote for their favorite at participating downtown businesses. The winner will receive a special award from the City of Pacific Grove.

Then, each one of the beautiful works will be auctioned off at a special end of season event with the proceeds benefiting the Pacific Grove Art Center.
