The City of McKinney is proud to support the monarch butterfly and other pollinators. Our mission is to provide information promoting the creation of habitats to increase the monarch population during migration through the McKinney area.
This joint public art project between the Texas Commission for the Arts, the McKinney Arts Commission, McKinney Main Street and the City of McKinney seeks to attract and educate visitors and residents alike on the importance of the Monarch butterfly to our ecosystem. The project includes eight over-sized, steel Monarch butterfly sculptures painted by local McKinney artists. The installation of these grand butterfly masterpieces will enhance the unique look and feel of the McKinney Cultural Arts District.
