Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory
2500 Kossuth Road, Cambridge ON N3H 4R7
Artist Concept Statement:
“In these trying times we’ve had to slow down, value what is near and dear to us, and feel fortunate for this wonderful world. I’ve been noticing the butterflies in the garden, and they – and the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory – provided inspiration for my design.”
