The Yale Center for British Art Moth and Butterfly jewelry collection is now available at the Shop. This collection represents a partnership between Pico Design and the Center. Every design is inspired by the materials and forms comprising Louis I. Kahn’s distinctive building. In describing his vision for the Center, the architect remarked: “On a gray day it will look like a moth. On a sunny day, like a butterfly.”
