Artist Yuri Tsuzuki created The Butterfly project, which is an art project that emcompasses the entire City of Greenvile, and which took her five years to complete. It was just finished last year. Tsuzuki mentions how the City of Greenville used to be a textile community, and how it has transformed since then. She explains her decision to use butterflies in her artwork, saying, "The buttefly transforms itself. What a great metaphor for the City of Greenville."
Artist Yuri Tsuzuki was interviewed by PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Lab students from Legacy Early College High School in Greenville, South Carolina. The PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs program connects middle and high school students to local PBS stations and news professionals in their community to produce original, student-generated video reports. Legacy Charter Early College High School is mentored by ETV Carolinas.
