promotes community pollinators by placing beehives in neighborhoods and parks in Miami.
By creating greater access to educational opportunities, and presenting with the arts in mind, Public Hives inspires community members to learn alongside one another while observing and learning from other communities: bees!
Public Hives is run by arts administrator + beekeeper, Danielle Bender, with help from volunteer and future entomologist Christian Acebedo.
This project was made possible by the 2017 Public Space Challenge, a program of the Miami Foundation. Public Hives is also supported by and 8 80 Cities. Support for Public Hives is provided by Locust Projects through its WaveMaker Grants program, which is part of the Andy Warhol Foundation's Regional Regranting Program. WaveMaker Grants is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, and Wells Fargo.
PH Opa Locka hives are located at Health in the Hood’s Community Garden, located in the middle of the neighborhood. This location will be open for visits in April.
