ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Jack Archibald's "Metamorphosis" series evokes both changes in the state of a butterfly—stained glass sections are titled "Chrysalis," "Caterpillar," "Butterfly," and "Learning to Fly"—and the state of the children that mature as they navigate their years at Panther Lake Elementary.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Kent School District.
