The butterfly Effect
August 2019 fundraiser
Experience The Butterfly Effect
Vice Mayor Elizabeth Bennett-Parker is bringing the Butterfly Effect, a global public art and philanthropy project, to Alexandria. Artist Tasha Wahl created the project, which features interactive butterfly murals. Through September 8, visitors will be able to take a picture with the butterfly mural, located at 924 King Street, and select a charity of their choice from a list of almost 250 local and national nonprofits to receive a donation.
The Butterfly Effect is modeled after Edward Lorenz’s “Butterfly Effect” theory that even the softest flutter of a wing can affect the molecules around it, setting off a chain reaction that amplifies into major change. It facilitates small acts of kindness, encourages generosity, and promotes creativity. It includes the Mahatma Gandhi philosophy of being the change you want to see in the world and facilitates small acts of kindness, encourages generosity, and promotes creativity.
924 King Street, Alexandria, VA. The mural is located on the side facing Patrick Street.
