Kaleidoscope Sculpture and Butterfly Habitat by Dan Tran

Late last summer Sierra 2 Center engaged the services of local artist Daniel Tran of Growetry to create a sculpture and installation for our Curtis Hall courtyard garden. Kaleidoscope is a sculpture acting as a trellis for native plants which provide a habitat for the Pipevine Swallowtail Butterfly, one of California’s native and endemic butterflies. While not endangered it is locally rare in developed areas.

The more neighbors who plant native butterfly friendly habitats, the more butterflies we can expect to see! Keep an eye out for native plant sales around town and particularly at our Annual Home & Garden tour where Restoration Landscaping will be selling native plants! Sierra 2 Center is actively working to combine local art & ecological restoration in our urban landscape to deeper connections to nature for all Sacramentans. Join us!
