Bees(wax) in the Galleries!

Have you EXPERIENCED the exhibitions by James Turrell and Scott Johnson? If not, more than just your visual senses are missing out. Colorado Springs artist Scott Johnson challenges the audience's standard conception of gallery art that only hangs on the wall.

Beeswax is an example of the versatility of nature, having cosmetic, religious, aesthetic, musical uses among many others. Of the uses shown below... which one can you find in the museum? ;)

Come visit these shows ... and see how many times you can sense beeswax in the galleries!
