Starting on August 1, 2012, the Huntsville Botanical Garden will begin auctioning off over 30 of its beautifully hand painted butterflies from the summer’s exhibit. These 5 ½ feet tall works of art have adorned the Garden since May and have been publicly embraced due to their beauty, uniqueness and for some, a very heartfelt story. The Garden would like to sell these butterflies and give our community the chance to carry on the displaying of these beautiful creatures by auctioning them off in order to benefit the Garden and its continuation of such fine exhibits. The butterflies will remain on display in the Garden through September 19 to allow potential buyers the opportunity to view in person what is available. If you have further questions, please contact the Garden directly by calling 256-830-4447 ext. 241.
