Invited to visit Northampton High School by Art Director, Sheryl Jaffe, our visiting artist, Milan Rai, wowed students with his simple message of sustainability and collaborative art installations using white butterflies made from recycled trash as a symbol of personal and collective transformation. As one student was heard to comment, "Who wouldn't want a white butterfly?"

Many of the students themselves come from a multicultural background and could relate to Milan's "magic," as he travels the globe.
The results outside the classroom were stunning.
A slide show and article by Sheryl are forthcoming.
