Four volunteers with the Beehive Design Collective will be in Alaska for two weeks in August to tour with their epic graphic narrative, “The True Cost of Coal”.
“The Beehive Design Collective, headquartered in Machias, Maine, works to take back visual narrative with artwork that offers rich, politically charged stories untold by our news media. On completing their signature mural-type banners, members of the collective travel to schools, rallies, and other events to present the artwork in the form of “picture-lectures” on subjects from monoculture to coal mining. The Beehive group, which describes itself as “word-to-image translators,” has six “backbone bees” who live in a house in Machias when not on the road and dozens of others who participate in Beehive projects”
You can catch the Beehive Collective and their epic graphic narratives at many events in Alaska this summer, including:
• Turkey Red – August 9 – Palmer, AK – @ 6:30 pm
