NYC Bees

pictures of honey bees

I was walking on 2nd Ave around 50th street in NYC and noticed an unusual display.

I saw a gazebo in a park with a 193 bees painted on gold panels placed on the Gazebo to make it look like bees swarming-

Artist Matthew Willey is painting over 50,000 honey bee murals in cities around the world. 
I have to say that this sculpture like display on the existing park gazebo caught my attention. 


"The Good of the Hive is an artistic initiative founded by Matthew Willey on a  personal commitment to hand-paint 50,000 honeybees – the number necessary for a healthy, thriving hive - in murals around the world. Through art and imagination, The Good of the Hive raises awareness about the importance of honeybees and other pollinators while celebrating the beauty and power of human connection."

    All of our bees are dying around here.
    We need more BEE awareness!
