ON THE COVER (JULY 2016): An Annex bee celebration

July 25th, 2016 · No Comments

PHOTO BY GEREMY BORDONARO/GLEANER NEWS: The June 23 unveiling of Nick Sweetman’s mural on the east wall of 442 Bloor St. W. coincided with the proclamation that Toronto is now the first official Bee City in Canada. Commissioned by Burt’s Bees, Sweetman’s mural — which features the female metallic green sweat bee responsible for a large amount of pollination — is intended to demonstrate the bee’s importance, and how we, on earth, says the artist, “are the single house on the block” with only one earth to keep healthy.
