Indiana-based artist Tasha Lewis transforms the Conservatory’s gallery with thousands of magnetic cyanotype butterflies printed on cotton fabric. Her blue butterflies hover in mid-air and seem to swarm the space, blurring the connection between the natural and artificial worlds.
Citizens denied medicaid
Last summer, Congress passed a new federal law, requiring medicaid recipients to prove they are U.S. citizens.

Purely legal citizens, most of them children, are being denied the free medical care.
