  • Overview

    The custom butterfly mobile at the Houston Holocaust Museum included 1,500 butterfly shapes. It was installed within the museum’s large atrium, spanning three floors.

    The butterflies hold high significance to the museum, as they are made to represent a child lost during the holocaust. Thus, the installation of the mobiles has the butterflies undulating upward, towards the sky.
