A community or group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope… and O1ARTS holds the value of community dear. As our #migratingmural project has been a major collaborative effort with The Monarch, Weber State, Weber County, The Ogden Nature Center and others, we are delighted to host the most community-centric exhibition at our O1|PLATFORMS site ever!
Opening at 5:30pm on October 5th, in conjunction with Ogden’s First Friday Art Stroll, monarch butterfly-related artworks and installations from eight different project teams, featuring more than 100 local students and artists will migrate to PLATFORMS, to be enjoyed by all for the month of October.
