Bee Downtown! (See the Bee Mural Being Painted Outdoors)
November 23, 2020
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until December 2, 2020
**UPDATE! Artist Matt Willey will complete part of Hendersonville’s Bee Mural this fall and will then return to complete the painting of the mural in the spring, exact dates TBD.
Our local Bee City USA affiliate (a program of The City of Hendersonville Tree Board and Environmental Sustainability Board) is partnering with Hands On! Children’s Museum, The Good of the Hive, nonprofit organizations, local businesses, and community members to create a larger-than-life bee mural in the heart of downtown Hendersonville! The bees will be painted on the exterior wall of the children’s museum located within the Azalea Public Parking Lot (facing Third Ave. E. between N. Main Street and King Street). In addition to the many benefits provided by public art, the mural will help draw attention to the importance of pollinators, celebrate the power in human connection, and inspire actions to help sustain healthy ecosystems. Weather permitting, stop by to meet the artist (Matt Willey) and watch him bring the mural to life brushstroke by brushstroke. In addition, a series of video updates about the bee mural project will be posted online at https://www.facebook.com/beecityhendersonville. Please also join in expressing appreciation to (and supporting) our “Bring the Hive Alive!” sponsors who have done so much to make this project possible, for the good of all – https://handsonwnc.org/?url=hivesponsors.
