Bee Downtown! (See the Bee Mural Being Painted Outdoors)
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until April 30, 2021
Bee City USA – Hendersonville is thrilled to be partnering with Hands-On! Children’s Museum, local businesses, organizations, and community members to bring The Good of the Hive back to complete the bee mural in the heart of downtown Hendersonville this spring. Weather permitting, stop by to meet the artist (Matt Willey) and watch him bring the pollinators to life brushstroke by brushstroke! Matt will be adding more bees and honeycomb around the corner of the Hands-On! building plus painting flowers growing up from the ground and adding additional pollinators in flight across the walls. Hendersonville’s mural is part of Matt’s initiative to personally paint 50,000 bees and pollinators in murals around the world. Each Saturday in April, local organizations and vendors offering local honey, plants or seeds, tasty treats, artwork, crafts for the kids, gardening tips, etc. will also join in the pollinator-friendly fun at the mural site! The mural walls are located within the Azalea Public Parking Lot (facing Third Ave. E. between N. Main Street and King Street).
