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 ElsabĂ© 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.
