SEEING BEES is inspired by the essential role bees play in our environment and provides a way to experience bees as they have rarely been seen before.
SEEING BEES, a free outdoor art installation featuring the artwork of world-renowned photographer Dan Winters, will be on display at Waterloo Park starting April 23, 2022 through May 21, 2023. The exhibition will be open daily during park hours. The exhibition is free to the public and engaging for all ages.
With a sharp eye for the most minute details of honeybee anatomy, SEEING BEES features a series of large format images created using a scanning electron microscope. The exhibit allows visitors to experience bees as they have rarely been seen before! Through this interactive experience we hope to raise awareness and foster appreciation for the essential role these fascinating creatures play in our ecosystem.
“These images magnify bees to an unprecedented level with every hair in focus, allowing for a view into the complexity of the honeybee first hand,” said Dan Winters, who started keeping his own hive at age nine. Known for his celebrity portraits, the award-winning photographer entered new territory when he began snapping these industrious insects using a field emissions scanning electron microscope.
SEEING BEES is presented by Wild Spirit Wild Places, in partnership with Round Rock Honey and Waterloo Greenway.The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of H-E-B, and Guerlain. Together these organizations are committed to dedicating their resources and taking remarkable action to support conservation and increase public awareness and environmental stewardship.
