In 2010 artist Donald Lipski created a butterfly constructed from steel and 10,000 resin filled glass test tubes for the new Science Building of Denver's Auraria Campus in Colorado. Measuring 14' x 16' x 12' the butterfly is hung by a glass curtain wall, the piece catches the light like a stained glass window, as it slowly rotates with breezes from the HVAC. Denver based artist John McEnroe oversaw the plastic work for this project.
