Bee Palace Celebration

Audubon Zoo

We will celebrate The Bee Palace, a sculpture by Providence, RI artist Esther Solondz. During Esther’s 2017 fellowship at A Studio in the Woods she created The Bee Palace as a nesting site for wild solitary bees. Installed in the Pollinator Garden at Audubon Zoo, it has successfully been promoting our local bee population in New Orleans. Esther will be on hand, along with staff from the Audubon Insectarium and the Zoo to applaud the ongoing project and answer questions, (such as what are wild solitary bees anyway?!). Entrance for this FREE event will be at the Education gates, to the right of the main zoo entrance.
