The Beehive Collective

(Posted November 10, 2010)

the beehive collective is rooted in rural eastern Maine and I came across one of their posters at our JVC fundraiser a few weeks ago.  from their website:

The Bees have spent 10 years developing an innovative and story-based education strategy that we share through a variety of interactive, image-based picture-lectures and graphic workshops. We believe that art is a tool for popular analysis, education and organizing- and that the complex and overwhelming issues that face our world can be broken down and understood in simple pictures.”

the poster i came across was an illustration of the destructive nature and true cost of coal and it was extraordinarily eye-opening.  the beehive collective engages schools and other groups all across the country and crosses national borders to bring really important messages to people through their illustrations.
