Bee on the Lookout!
Something is buzzing in Pompano Beach! The City of Pompano Beach Public Art Committee commissioned lead artist Sonata Kazimieraitiene to work with five apprentices to create multiple mosaic murals which will be installed throughout the City. One of Sonata’s mosaic projects includes a ‘Trail of the Honey Bees’. This trail contains multiple mosaic murals ranging in size which connects the community and the cultural arts facilities through artwork and education.
The focal point of the mosaic project is on the honey bee and the vegetation it helps pollinate. Pompano Beach was built by our rich agricultural community. This trail encourages a spirit of unity by connecting the two districts together by means of art. Without the help of the honey bee and continued education on the importance of the honey bee, the agricultural community as a whole is at stake.
