I was lucky enough to see this show last night. As well as a beautiful artwork, the Beehive Collective work is a very detailed story on the history of the Appalachian Mountains in Canada narrated live. The story took 3 years and 100 people to put together and involved extensive community research and consultation. See it here: http://www.beehivecollective.org/english/coal.htm

Toy to the world project

Toy to the World is currently a biennial charity art event involving a custom vinyl toy design competition that provides both the opportunity for public to witness art creation happening live and the chance for artists to exhibit works while contributing their creations to help raising funds to go toward HIV research in the hopes of improving the lives of those affected by it.

The event is split into two distinct parts, the Design Day launch event where artists can collect a plain white vinyl toy and begin work live with provided paints and markers; and the Exhibition & Auction where all the complete works are judged by respected industry judges and displayed while a 2 week silent auction runs. Artists may pre-register their interest for a time slot on the Design Day, or may register to receive a vinyl toy to complete before the Exhibition.
