Bee in the City was a free, fun and fascinating art trail which took place in Manchester from 23 July – 23 September 2018.
Manchester’s happy hum of creativity became the biggest buzz around town. A colony of decorative, super-sized worker Bee sculptures brought nine weeks of fun and fascination. After months of thinking, discussing, creating and perfecting – artists, members of community groups and young people gave flight to creativity for one of the most striking spectacles the city has ever seen. Over 100 individually – designed super-sized Bees and over 130 equally artistic little Bees (created as part of the Bee in the City Learning Programme) brought plenty of enjoyment for trail followers.
Following the auction, the large Bees have now taken up new habitats in their forever homes. Meanwhile, the little Bees have been returned to schools and groups that created them as a legacy of the event.
