Kerr Arts and Cultural Center

On the same day that we toured the Schreiner Mansion, we toured the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center.  It is located next to the mansion.  Both are free!
One exhibit was quilt pieces designed by separate artists based on the quilt piece before it.  The first item on the left is a paper picture.  The second item is a re-creation of the picture with cloth quilt pieces.  The remaining items are also quilted cloth creations.  Each picture is created by a different artist based on seeing just the completed quilt picture before it.
Here is another example of the sequence.

Upon leaving the art gallery, I spotted this gorgeous butterfly flitting around these flowers.  It was the very best work of art!  My research indicates that it is of the Pipevine Swallowtail family and specifically is classified as Battus P. Philenor.
