The Butterfly Pony Project is an awareness and Art campaign to help raise funding to support the Transgender Health and Wellness Center of Palm Springs. This center provides many critical services to the Transgender and gender non-conforming community in the Inland Empire and surrounding areas including, but not limited to, improving access to adequate health care and mental health services, job skills assistance, housing and employment assistance, referral to drug and alcohol addiction services, access to personal care items and financial assistance.
The project aims to combine the talents of many artists to raise awareness of the great need for these services and to bring into focus the beauty and diversity of the community. Each pony is a vintage hobby horse that needs to be refurbished and made beautiful again. They will then be auctioned off in late October and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Center to aid them in their mission. If you are an artist, no matter your experience level or medium, please contact us to get involved. If you are a collector, get on the mailing list for updates by contacting us.
