“We have an opportunity to give a voice to this crisis, one we should all be concerned about, as this includes many native bees that are critical to crop pollination across the United States.”
– Polasek Museum Curator Rachel Frisby
SPONSORED: The Albin Polasek Museum and Sculpture Gardens (Facebook | Website) is pleased to announce its summer exhibition, Precious Pollinators featuring the work of the Central Florida Watercolor Society.
The exhibition will run from May 7 to August 25, 2019, and is a glimpse into art surrounding one of our most important natural resources; the bee and other pollinators.
The collection of paintings has been submitted
by members of the Central Florida Watercolor Society, a local collective of
professional and award-winning artists, as curated by the Polasek Museum.
According to a report from the Center for Biological Diversity, more than half of the 4,000 native bee species in North America and Hawaii are in decline. Nearly one in four is at increasing risk of extinction.
The Polasek Museum is located at 633 Osceola Avenue, Winter Park [GMap].
