Weidner temporary ‘home’ for frogs, butterflies and friends

UW-Green Bay’s Weidner Center for the Performing Arts will be the host venue of a special 25th Anniversary Gallery for The Einstein Project, May 5, 2016. And in the meantime, the Weidner also has the privilege of providing “gallery space” for the beautiful creations known as “Butterflies and Friends.” Annually, the butterflies, frogs, turtles, and other critters, created by Wisconsin artists, are displayed downtown Green Bay and then auctioned with proceeds benefiting The Einstein Project — an organization dedicated to providing affordable and engaging science materials and teacher training to advance science knowledge, skill and enthusiasm for learning in our local schools. This year, Kate Green, Executive Director of the Weidner, offered the venue as a logical place for the critters to land. Get a close-up look in this gallery by University photographer/videographer Dan Moore, or take a field trip to the Weidner Center, and see for yourself. The lobby is open 90 minutes prior to any Weidner event, and visitors are welcome at that time.  Next up is Saturday, Jan. 30 for the performance of Goodnight Moon and the Runaway Bunny.  The lobby opens at 9:30 a.m.  Find the full schedule of events online at WeidnerCenter.com.
