"Swarm Miami" art show at Blu Moon Studio

Sheri Friedman is back from her summer travels and she's getting right into the groove of thing at Blu Moon Studio.  They're having a special event on Saturday, August 16, called "Swarm Miami."

The group art exhibit is also a consciousness raiser. Bees, a very important part of the eco-system are being threatened by pesticides and other environmental factors. August 16 is National Honey Bee Day. Groups around the world will be raising awareness about this important issue and that's what Blue Moon is doing.

Honey bees are the pollinators of backyard gardens, which are where 98% of the world's honey comes from; they are vital for the overall health of the environment. Beekeeping is mostly about small family-owned backyard farms. The first National Honey Bee Day was in 2009.

The National Honey Bee Day mission incorporates three primary goals.
 1) Promotion and advancement of beekeeping.
 2) Educate the public to honey bees and beekeeping.
 3) Make the public aware of environmental concerns affecting honey bees

So of course Bees are the theme of Blu Moon's art show. Blu Moon will donate 10% of the proceeds from the show to The Pollinator Partnership, a non-profit organization that supports research and conservation of pollinator animals. 

Blu Moon is located at 3444 Main Highway, #7. The exhibit is from 7 to 10 pm.  For info: 305-794-0329 - blumoonsheri@gmail.com
