Whimsical Sculpture of Flying Bees

Out of all the creative art I've seen in the past 2 1/2 years since running My Modern Met, one of the most standout pieces has got to be Los Angeles-based artist Bumblebee's phone booths. By taking abandoned phone booths and turning them into beehives, Bumblebee made us remember why we love public art so much. Just recently, at Carmichael Gallery for the Beyond Eden Art Fair, Bumblebee showed off a sweet sculpture called Bee is for Bucket. I love how the yellow paint looks like it's dripping right off the wood and how these worker bees are flying around with their mini buckets and brushes. How whimsical and wonderful!
