“A Butterfly for Brooklyn” will be shown at 2 p.m. at the Belen Public Library. Afterwards, the artist, her husband, photographer Donald Woodman, and two Belen residents who helped set up the massive fireworks piece, Kevin Lederer and Aaron Silva, will discuss the project.

Judy Chicago began creating pyrotechnic pieces on the beaches of Southern California in the late 1960s. “A Butterfly for Brooklyn” was her largest and most complex fireworks. It incorporated flares, fireworks and LED lighting in the shape of a butterfly. An acre of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park was roped off for the April 26, 2014 spectacle.

The 22-minute film, overseen by award-winning editor Kate Amend and filmmaker Joan Churchill, follows Chicago and her crew in creating the pyrotechnic display that attracted more than 12,000 people. The documentary premiered in April at the Brooklyn Museum, where Chicago’s monumental work The Dinner Party is housed.

Chicago’s special presentation is sponsored by Through the Flower, her non-profit organization that promotes feminist art and education, the Belen Harvey House Museum and the Belen Public Library, with cooperation from the Rail Runner.

Note: We're hoping people ride the Rail Runner to the event. It departs Santa Fe at 10:44 a.m. and 12:12 p.m. from the Downtown Albuquerque station. It arrives in Belen at 12:50 p.m. The library is about a 15-minute walk from the train station. Limited transportation will be available. The north-bound train leaves Belen at 5:45 p.m.
