These target practice sheets have bullet holes (created by the artist herself...?) and painted Monarch Butterflies on them. These delicate works of art by Kerri Sabine-Wolf were a part of this past year’s Made in California. We were so delighted to host them - did you know the Monarch is teaching dangerously low populations in CA?
