“Big beautiful bees on a wall, magnetize enthusiasm and allow curiosity to create new understanding and perception of them. And because art is always a personal experience, it allows people to engage with it on their own terms.” - Matthew Willey @thegoodofthehive • • #art #bees #pollinatorweek #thegoodofthehive #savethebees🐝 #mindmag #artist #inspiration #murals #nationalpollinatorweek #mattwilley #honeybees at North Carolina

Continuing @thegoodofthehive intiative,Matthew just finished an installation called Colony Expanse at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in NYC.The goal is for someone in each of 193 countries to sponsor one of the bees so that when this piece is dismantled, the bees will travel all over the world. • • #art #bees #pollinatorweek #thegoodofthehive #savethebees🐝 #mindmag #artist #inspiration #murals #nationalpollinatorweek #mattwilley #honeybees #daghammarksjoldplaza #unitednations #colonyexpanse at Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza

Matthew Willey is so much more than a man with a paintbrush. His work is powerful and inspirational and his view on art is beautiful. He is living his passion and impacting the world. Through @thegoodofthehive , he connects people from all walks of life, creating conversations around our sweet fuzzy pollinators – the honey bees. • • #art #bees #thegoodofthehive #pollinatorweek2018 #savethebees🐝 #mindmag #artist #inspiration #murals #nationalpollinatorweek #mattwilley #honeybees at North Carolina

Miss North Carolina stopped by #thegoodofthehive’s table at the #centerforhoneybeeresearch #blackjar honey tasting event in #asheville tonight!!! Truth be told, her mother made her come meet me because I had offered to help carry her bags in the parking lot. “So shines a good deed in a weary world.” (Willy Wonka)

I am so excited to have been invited to present a poster about the work of The Good of the Hive at the 2018 Planetary Health Alliance meeting in Edinburgh, Scotland! It was a bit of a whirlwind to complete the installation in NYC yesterday and get here this morning, but totally worth it! I have already learned an enormous amount after just one lecture session. There are big problems in the world, (this we know) but there are also brilliant people dedicating their life and work to solving them. #worldbees #onebighive #bees #beelosopher #thegoodofthehive at Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Colony Expanse installation nearing completion! Only 40 more bees to add to the swarm to reach 193 (the number of member states of the United Nations). Each bee is hand painted. It will be up until August 18th in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in NYC (47th and 2nd Ave). #thegoodofthehive #onebighive #bees #honeybees #worldbees #pollinators at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

@thegoodofthehive

Detail pic as I get ready to continue the installation of Colony Expanse in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in NYC today! 193 hand-painted bees braving the elements all summer like the bees themselves. What will happen to them? What is happening to the actual bees in the environment? Each painting represents a member state of the United Nations. Stay tuned for info on how you can help sponsor a bee and join us in bringing these painted symbols to the countries they represent! We’re all in this together. #onebighive #thegoodofthehive #nycparks #honeybees #bees at Manhattan, New York

Honored to have had the opportunity to be a part of the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) World Bee Day panel discussion this morning. Such amazing people!!! The Ambassador to Slovenia was the key note! Slovenia is way ahead of the curve in terms of awareness about bees and pollination. I gave a short talk about #thegoodofthehive and the Colony Expanse installation currently going up in NYC. (Pics courtesy of the FAO) #bees #people #onebighive at Washington, District of Columbia

Thank you so much for all your hard work. The paintings, the installations, your labor of love is SO inspiring. Warm regards from #StCroix where there are still feral honey bees. One colony at the base of my driveway in the hole of a tree. #STX #ColdwellBankerStCroixRealty @thegoodofthehive ・・・ Happy #worldbeeday everyone!!!!! This is the Queen we will be installing with the swarm in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza across from the UN starting today! 193 hand-painted bees representing 193 member states of the United Nations. The installation will up until August 18th!

In two days we are heading to Dag Hammarskjold Plaza in NYC (East 47th and 2nd across the street from the UN). We are installing 193 golden bees (the number of member states of the United Nations) and 4 hive sculptures! We begin the installation on Friday and it will be up until August 18th. The piece is titled Colony Expanse and is a collaboration with the World Council of Peoples for the UN, Friends of Dag Hammarskjold and the NYC Parks and Rec. This piece is a new direction for The Good of the Hive so stay tuned for more about this story as the adventure continues! #onehive #thegoodofthehive #pollinators #bees #honeybees #people #nycparks #unitednations at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza

A few pics from EU day at the French Embassy. There were literally thousands of people! I was so busy I forgot to take pics! I gave three talks about #thegoodofthehive during the day and began to tell people about the installation piece we are putting up later this week across from the United Nations in NYC! More on that soon! #onehive #pollinators #bees #honeybees

DC folks! I’m at the French Embassy (4101 Reservoir Rd) today painting a bee and presenting about the work of #thegoodofthehive. It is the EU Open House Day! I’m also premiering a new video by the amazing @jeez_the_bees !!! Presentations at 10:30am, 12pm and 2pm. I’ll be painting in between. Come share the love! #bees #honeybees #pollinators #onehive

Just a few pics from the #lakecitysc mural site. It was such an awesome experience. Apparently someone was counting and I spoke with over 2000 kids about bees and their hive! And that was just the classes they counted! I honestly have no idea how this mural happened with all of that activity. But we had a blast and met so many amazing artists and made new lifelong friends. Bonded by bees! More pics going up at The Good of the Hive dot com soon! #thegoodofthehive #bees #artfields2018 #savingtheworldthroughartandplayfulness

What a great day spent with my Middle School Studio Art students visiting ARTfields on Friday. We all gathered around to grab a group shot with an entry by one of our 7th grade students, proud teacher here. Learning about the 50,000 bee mural project, created by artist Matthew Willey of #thegoodofthehive was so inspirational. #artfields #montessorifieldtrip at Lake City, South Carolina

I paint a lot of bees (approximately 3000 so far) and every one is unique... but once in a while one just stands out to me with personality. This one just came to life and said, “Oh hello” like The Little Prince in the famous book by Antoine de Saint-Exupery. Anatomically perfect?... who cares?...

#tbt to one of our most playful mural sites to date... Carrboro, NC Fire Station circa 2016. Bees 1131-1193. I love when people find ways to interact with the murals through selfies or when I catch a photo of a little one trying to touch a bee to see if it is real (if they can reach it). Anyone got any good pics from mural sites? I’d love to see them! #thegoodofthehive #savingtheworldthroughartandplayfulness #we #honeybees #bees #carrboronc
