Calling all Connecticut Artists! 1.5 million is such a big number to visualize -- be a part of a new exhibit being created at the Holocasut Museum Houston. The Hochberg Human Rights committee of Temple Bnai Israel, Willimantic is launching a state-wide initiative, asking artists, young and old to create a butterfly as a memorial to the 1.5 million innocent children who perished during the Holocaust. Already the museum has collected 400,000 butterflies from across the world in preparation for an exhibit they are creating to launch in 2013. The Hochberg Human Rights committee hopes the great people of CT will add significantly to that collection.

Visit to learn about the initiative and to read about the specs required of each butterfly.
