A sweet and savory collection of local art with an important cause beehind it, “What’s All the Buzz About?” is a fundraising art exhibition benefiting The Palm Beach County Beekeepers Association. Hosted at “Art on Park”, a sweet hub for the artist community in Lake Park, the exhibition will feature buzz-worthy artwork from local artists.

Rolando Change Barrero of ActivistArtistA is working with Steev Rullman from PureHoney to jury in the best of our buzzing South Florida art community to compile a showing of bee-themed art in all mediums.

“This is my answer to all of the hoopla and activisim going around about the extinction of bees, and GMO’s…” says Rolando. “We need to stop the finger pointing. We know the problem. What are we doing as a solution? This is my solution.”

The goal is to bring people together to discover and connect through their separate and unique identities (and mediums), and unite for the common cause. Rolando says he hopes to “create an environment where these connections can be made.”

“It takes a serious and critical issue about our sustainability and food and keeps it light, without the anger. It has a defined solution, we just need to work together to get there as a community.”

President of The Palm Beach County Beekeepers Association Al Salopek will be giving a speech and presentation about their efforts and involvement in protecting South Florida’s bee population.
