Description: Large-scale, colorful butterflies, symbols of beauty and transformation, dominate the imagery of We Fly. In nature, this insect’s life cycle is a metamorphosis, a dramatic change from caterpillar to butterfly. Like the butterfly, a communtiy changes; children become adults and residents become concerned citizens. They take ownership of their neighborhood and contribute to the greater good. The become empowered.
