The Bee’s Knees: Mason Beehives Involved in Collaborative Art Project

Faculty and staff of George Mason University were minding their own beeswax all summer. As part of the Living Hive Project, artist Elsabé Dixon, a Mason alumna and Mason School of Art adjunct instructor, placed sections of a 12-part sculpture prototype made of plaster form and a drywall compound inside the hives of George Mason’s Honey Bee Initiative in May to track the activities of the honeybees.
