The Bee Cave Arts Foundation announces a Call for Artists for The Bees of Bee Cave

The Bees of Bee Cave will be a public art exhibition featuring 10 Bee Sculptures designed by local artists to reflect the creative freedom of the artist and visually engage the community and visitors at the Hill Country Galleria, located in Bee Cave Texas. The Bees will be on display for 6 months, then enter into an auction to be moved to their permanent homes.

OPEN CALL:
The Bee Cave Arts Foundation (BCAF) will accept 10 inspired designs by artists and/or artist teams with the ability to create complex and engaging designs. Each Bee sculpture is 5 ft. tall by 4 ft. wide and made of a fiberglass/concrete mixture. The sculptures may be taken to a secure workspace and returned to The Hive upon completion (no later than Nov. 15, 2020). Alternatively, studio space will be available for artists to work at The Hive by the Bee Cave Arts Foundation located in the Hill Country Galleria in Bee Cave, TX.
All of the Bee sculptures will be sprayed with a white primer before being released to the artists. All paint will be provided for this project. A stipend of $500 will be paid to each selected artist and/or team.
