“I saw the new sculpture Nighthawk and I was hoping you could tell me what happened to the statue that was in Burberry Park. We called it the butterfly sculpture and the base is still there but the wings have been gone for years. Do you know why?” —Paula Welch-Renazco

The project manager for the City of Sacramento’s Art in Public Place Program Donald Gensler responds:

The sculpture in Burberry Park is called “Shadow Flowers” by Sacramento based artist Jenny Hale.

This sculpture had a materials issue that was covered by insurance but required it to be removed for repairs. The city contracted with the artist and a vendor to repair the sculpture.

The sculpture was scheduled to be installed again in the park in May 2020. However, the vendor has had some health issues, and then COVID-19 further delayed his repair work.

We are hoping that by the end of the summer, the sculpture will be re-installed in Burberry Park.
