The Animalis Works team, artists Dharmesh Patel and Autumn Ewalt, was inspired by the revitalization and conservation of Northwest Community Park as an ecosystem. Particularly interested in its reemergence as a stopping point on the migration route of the monarch butterflies, the team designed a series of larger-than-life butterfly sculptures. Each beautiful butterfly sculpture calls to mind this migration, encapsulating the energy and vibrance of nature
