In July 2018, Manchester will host one of its most spectacular public art events ever… Bee in the city
Wild in Art and Manchester City Council are bringing all of Manchester’s communities together to create Bee in the City – a stunning public art trail of 80+ individually designed giant bee sculptures. Crafted by regional professional and emerging artists, it will weave its way across the city during the summer of 2018. An inspirational learning project will give children and young people the chance to take part.
It’s free, it’s fun, it’s fascinating – and it will be in Manchester from July – September 2018
An inclusive learning programme, imaginatively linked to the curriculum, will give children and young people the chance to explore everything Manchester through creative eyes.
Local community groups will also be invited to make their own special contribution to the trail – working with artists to develop and realise their own artistic ideas.
The Bee in the City trail will be on display throughout the city for nine weeks from July to September 2018 for Mancunians and visitors to enjoy whilst taking in the city’s landmarks, cultural gems and areas they may not have explored before. Each super-sized bee sculpture will be decorated with its own unique design, created by regional professional, emerging and amateur artists – making an unforgettably stunning spectacle when the trail goes live.
