Flight Path Art Exhibit

In the spirit of our mission we had to share our airport scrub land cinderella story in a way that would inspire, inform and compel. Naturally we took our imaginations for a ride and landed inside the Sea-Tac airport by the security gates with a green light to share the Flight Path story through an art exhibit. Under the leadership of the masterful Kate Fernandez we curated bee-inspired creations by a talented roster of local artists. The flight path exhibit opened June, 2014 and the spirit and story of the bee -it’s past, present and hope for the future reached over two million people.

In conjunction with Seattle’s designation as a Bee City, the Flight Path exhibit was brought to the City Hall Gallery & Anne Focke Gallery, with support from The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture in April of 2015. During the exhibit, The Common Acre installed two beehives on City Hall’s green roof and held weekly educational presentations on beekeeping.

The exhibition included work on the subject of flight and bees by over two-dozen artists in a variety of mediums including mosaics, blown glass and photographs:
