As a way to help support the decline in bees, we are getting bee hives at MCAD! The hives will be installed today on the 3rd floor roof Tuesday, April 15, as a partner ship with the University of Minnesota's Hive to Bottle Program who will be maintaining the hives for us.

Many thanks to the following MCAD Departments for their support so that we could get the bee hives here on campus: The MCAD President's Office, Student Activities, Academic Affairs, The Printshop, The Gallery, The Cafeteria, Continuing Education, Online Learning, Technology, Academic Services, Entrepreneurial Studies, Fine Arts, Design, Media Arts, Liberal Arts, Service Bureau, Sustainable Design. A special thanks to MCAD student Ann Macarayan, who designed the logo for the bee hives, to MFA student Timothy Hamilton for painting the bee hives, and to MCAD Students, Kara Gregory, Pat Welch for their support with this project!
