If you're walking around downtown
Whitehouse, you may see some colorful butterflies, but they're not flying. They're
decorated fiberglass figures that have been installed in the downtown district.
After two years of planning,
the "Wings around Whitehouse" butterfly project is finally a reality. There are
27 fiberglass butterflies altogether. Each was purchased by a sponsor who either
decorated it themselves or hired an artist.
Five schools from the Anthony
Wayne, Toledo and Maumee Bay area designed and decorated butterflies, as well.
The project is the second
public art display to enhance downtown Whitehouse, and local business owners
are encouraging people to take a look.
"They're all pretty colorful,
and very unique to each business," said Tony Fronk, owner of The Whitehouse
Inn. "We've noticed some different people all around town, and they have been
taking a look at them. It's been welcoming."
An official unveiling of the
butterflies, including introductions of all artists and sponsors, will be held
on Saturday, June 8 at 7 p.m. There will also be a free concert in the park and
radio-controlled boat races in the quarry.
