516 ARTS presents Cross Pollination, a group exhibition showcasing work at the intersection of art and science that focuses on bees and other pollinators. About 35 percent of the world's food crops and 75 percent of the flowering plants depend on pollinators to reproduce. Without pollinators, particularly bees, around 3,500 species have become increasingly threatened by human action. With this knowledge, artists have responded to the issue by working with and for bees and other pollinators to raise awareness about their profound benefits to life on earth. Curated by artist/backyard beekeeper Valerie Roybal, with curatorial assistance from Claude Smith, Cross Pollination not only refers to how bees and other insects pollinate a large portion of the world's food, but also to the cross pollination of ideas in art and science. The exhibition includes local, national and international artists working in photography, drawing, printmaking, collage, sculpture, installation, film/video, performance, games and more.
