t8eFzPvBeehive Design Collective: Sucked Dry
Monday, October 20, 2014
6:30 to 8:30pm
Greenpeace Warehouse
955 7th Street, Oakland, CA

California is in the midst of a historical drought, the most severe the region has had in the last 500 years. This water crisis has devastated resources, with several communities facing the prospect of running dry. A number of projects advocating infrastructure development such as the BDCP and Prop 1 have been proposed as solutions for the state, but are they truly in the interests for all? What are their impacts to our drying rivers and reservoirs? Fisheries and communities? Drawing inspiration from struggles against large-scale infrastructure projects throughout MesoAmerica, the Bees will take you on a visual journey touching on the local and the global struggle for control and protection of water.”

The Beehive Design Collective is an all-volunteer organization of activists, artists, educators and organizers based in Machias, Maine. Their main focus is creating and presenting graphic works about global issues internationally. Their portable murals are teeming with intricate images of plants and animals, illustrating surreal but meticulously researched scenes of sociocultural realities in the modern world. Not only are our graphics detailed, beautiful works of art, but they also are tools in understanding the big picture of a region’s struggles.
