The Beehive Collective’s “Picture-Lecture”

January 26, 2011 @ 6:00 pm

CAC Gallery, Cambridge City Hall Annex, 2nd Fl.
Members of the art-activist organization, The Beehive Collective, discuss their latest graphic campaign, “The True Cost of Coal,” an elaborate narrative illustration that explores the complex story of mountaintop removal coal mining and the broader impact of coal usage in Appalachia and beyond. At this interactive “picture-lecture” on Wednesday, January 26, the Bees will talk about the 15-foot graphic while interweaving anecdotes, statistics, and history to prompt a discussion of contemporary struggles over energy and coal. This event is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Drawing in Public, curated by Liz K. Sheehan, on view at the CAC Gallery through February 18, 2011. http://www2.cambridgema.gov/CAC/Exhibitions/current.cfm or call the Cambridge Arts Council at 617-349-4380
