Butterfly Effect, as part of Lighthouse Writers Workshop’s 2019 Big Read (a program of the National Endowment for the Arts), explores the ways political resistance ripples through a family, a community, and a nation as inspired by Julia Alvarez’s In the Time of the Butterflies. The exhibition features six current or former Denver-based artists—Tya AnthonyCarol GolemboskiSuchitra Mattai (courtesy of K Contemporary), Tony Ortega (courtesy of William Havu Gallery), Daisy Patton (courtesy of K Contemporary), and George P. Perez—whose work speaks to various aspects of the novel’s themes.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of displayed artworks will benefit Lighthouse’s Fellowships for free or partial tuition to workshops, master classes, and extended programs for talented writers experiencing financial hardship.
