Wild in Art and Manchester City Council are bringing communities in Manchester together to create Bee in the City.

This stunning public art installation will comprise of over 80 individually designed, giant bee sculptures. Each fibreglass sculpture will stand 1.5 metres tall and will feature its own unique design created by professional, emerging and amateur artists from around the region.

The installation will be woven throughout the city this summer, in shopping centres, parks and public spaces and one of the giant bees will even find its home at Mayfield for the summer

Mayfield will be a hive of activity before the bees are dispersed around the city as the extraordinary artwork will be stored on the Mayfield site whilst final preparations for the unveiling are made.
