'The Good of the Hive' is a film about saving the world through art and playfulness. It shows a glimpse into the work of Matthew Willey, painting 50,000 honeybees in murals around the world. The film focuses on a mural at Janney Elementary School in Washington D.C., where a 7-year-old girl's letter creates an opportunity for her community to unite around the preservation of pollinators.
The Good of the Hive painted our biggest bees yet (over 21 feet each) in Lyons, Nebraska last month and then went immediately into painting the smallest of the initiative, thus far, with one, tiny, bee on a Cochlear implant receiver being put on an 11 year-old boy named Xander.
The Good of the Hive goes to Broadway and talks bees, faith, and Judaism with Adam Kantor in his dressing room at Fiddler on the Roof.
Artist Matthew Willey is painting 50,000 honeybees in murals around the world. This video shows some of his work at Burt's Bees global headquarters in Durham, NC. Special thanks to all of the Burt's Bees community for supporting the initiative!
