On Saturday, June 1, Wisdom House held its first Ecology and Spirituality program with a panel discussion on the topic of Bee Colony Collapse Disorder. The panel for the program was Alphonse Avitabile, Mother Ozanne Schuman, OSB, and artist Cate Bourke.
Over 55 people attended the
conversation, which was followed by the opening of Ms. Bourke's installation
piece "Requiem for Being," which is based on the same theme. An observation
hive was loaned by John Barker for the day so that guests could see the
activity that goes on inside a hive of honey bees. The installation will be in
the Marie Louise Trichet Gallery until September 7. Gallery hours are Monday -
Saturday 10 am - 4 pm.
