Art is the Honey of the Human Soul
Date created: 2020
In this mural, the artist has created a “bee rest stop” to help passers-by stop and enjoy the playful significance of stopping to smell the flowers, as well as the importance of pollinators: an estimated one-third of the food we eat relies on pollination, mainly by bees. In the installation, test tube vases hold the flowers that are “bombing” the mural, creating a whimsical experience.
This mural was originally installed at the front of the same property, as part of the 2020-2021 Indy Art & Seek project with the Arts Council of Indianapolis and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. Originally, neighbors were invited to make their own flower additions.The artist donated it to the property owner after the project was completed.
