Created for an artist-in-residency at The Lindquist College of Arts and Humanities at Weber State University, Generations celebrates the monarch butterfly’s remarkable, multi-generational migration pattern. Whether it is an eastern monarch migrating across the United States to Mexico for the winter, or Utah’s western monarch flying to California from the Rockies, no single butterfly makes the entire journey. It is a marvel and mystery of science: how do they know where to go? This mural showcases the stages of monarch growth from egg to butterfly amongst Utah wildflowers. Hues of burnt orange evoke the nostalgia of an old, sepia toned-photograph. At a center for higher learning, where generations of young minds have come to study, Generations tells a story of growth and discovery.
