Beehive Design Collective: “The True Cost of Coal” Slide Show

The Beehive Design Collective’s “True Cost of Coal” banner is featured in Susanne Antonetta’s article “Metaphor Crafters” in the March/April 2012 issue of Orion; through visual narrative, the banner tells the story of mountaintop removal mining in Appalachia. The Maine-based arts collective travels around the world, distributing this and other banners and giving “picture lectures” to present the voices and histories woven into the work. Learn more about how the collective brings together art and activism in this slide show tour of “The True Cost of Coal.”
