Pollination Collaboration: A Hendersonville Mural Brings Awareness to the Honey Bee!

Burlett Painting was pleased to BEE a part of our community’s efforts to raise awareness of the importance of the honey bee. We recently donated our services to paint the back exterior of the Hands On!

Matt is the founder of The Good of the Hive, whose mission is to bring awareness to planetary health issues through art and storytelling. As a part of that mission, Matt is committed to painting 50,000 honey bees — the number of bees in a healthy hive — in murals around the world. Matt has created 27 murals with over 5,400 bees in the past five years.
