In January 2012, The Kellogg University Art Gallery at Cal Poly Pomona presented a diverse exhibition featuring 10 years of Butler’s work. The exhibition, titled Embodied, was a selection of video works, still documentation, and photography that the artist uses to explore his own body through mental and spiritual phenomena such as pain, pleasure, struggle, redemption, and restoration. At APU, he teaches all levels of photography courses and new genre art forms in the undergraduate program and in graduate courses in the MFA program.
