Merging Bees, Activism, And Art
The Oregon Honey Festival aims to make itself sweet and sticky to a variety of tastes. Presenters range from bee scientists to honey sellers to artists.
And it's in that last category you'll findMeesha Goldberg of Eugene. One of her projects is a combination of performance art and ritual and activism called "Equilibrium Rites;" Goldberg and companions mirrored the annual pollination of California almond groves.
Works of art from the project are on display at a gallery in Los Angeles for another week. Meesha Goldberg joins us in the studio to talk about her interest in bees, prior to appearing at the Honey Festival.
