Kaleidoscope: A Community Exhibition of Butterflies

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.

PLATFORMS has transformed a formerly vacant, disused lot at 25th and Adams, and turned it into a vibrant, community-oriented performance and exhibition venue!

We’re programming sculpture, dance, photography, video, musical and literary performances on custom-built, 13′ x 13′ decks designed to offer a unique PLATFORM for local artists to mount their project.

Stanchions and chainlink panels provided by Weber County RAMP now allow us to mount exhibitions of 2D and installations/weaving.

Here’s what the community has to say:
