People are starting to wonder if it's mating season for blue butterflies in Indianapolis, but it's just the Tasha Lewis butterfly installations. Lewis created the butterflies from paper and attached them to surfaces around her city with magnets. The result is not only visually engaging, but also eco-friendly.

The installations are made from recycled materials, and unlike other types of street art, they do not damage the surface that they are placed on. These eco-friendly critters show off a lighter and happier side to street art, a genre that has often been associated with rebellion against authority and more controversial themes.

Lewis' materials can easily be installed in most places. This makes it a great piece of art to sell to people who would like to recreate the look at home.
