Logan High School senior Alexis Long has been commissioned to design and paint a mural for the side of the new Butterfly Ridge Visitor Center. Her canvas will measure approximately 8 feet x 36 feet and will be the wall that faces the entry drive, with a great view for southbound traffic on OH374.
You are possibly already familiar with her work. If you frequently drive US33 between Nelsonville and Logan then perhaps you have seen her billboard near the exit for OH328. Alexis is not a stranger to Butterfly Ridge. She and her brother Ethan helped to plant our prairie last spring. They must've done a good job as the prairie really started looking great late in the summer!
The concept that Alexis will be hoping to achieve with the mural is to inspire a child-like joy for the beautiful butterflies that call Butterfly Ridge home.
Butterfly Ridge will not be the last stop on her artistic journey. In Fall of 2017 she will start at Cedarville University near Xenia, Ohio to continue her art studies as a Graphic Design major. Butterfly Ridge is very pleased that she will be sharing her talent with us!
