Bee Collaboration Support!
Lauri Murphy started the campaign

So many of you have given wonderful and supportive praise for my recent artworks in collaboration with bees, and I’m excitedly preparing for the coming warmer months, forging relationships with Colorado beekeepers and sketching out some larger works and new experiments to move my research forward.  However, as we all know making art is a costly venture, even when your labor costs are spread over several thousand tiny workers!   Although my workforce expenses are small (no pun intended), I still need to build several hives, purchase wax, fabrics, and other supplies and fuel my truck for driving to locations across the Front Range.  To that end, I’m seeking your help, and asking you to be a part of this project.  Arts supporters can now support artists directly!  Even a tiny donation will help me tackle what is shaping up to be a busy summer of bee collaborations.   However, if you’re able to fund a larger amount, all donations over $250 will receive a small bee sculpture in the mail by the end of the summer!  (Look at it like pre-purchasing a surprise work of art at a greatly reduced price!)  

Even though it has tilted, I had set the bar low to make sure we could make it -- the actual budget for bee projects this spring and summer is $1500, so any contribution is an enormous help!  Thanks to all who have donated thus far!
