Chicago Beekeeper Hopes Graffiti Artists Tag Her Hives

Is graffiti art, or vandalism? Whatever your views on tagging and graffiti, at least one Chicago beekeeper hopes graffiti artists tagg her hives. Jana Kinsman, founder of Bike a Bee, seems to have been typing out loud on Twitter recently and openly invited taggers and artists to contribute to the unique look of the many hives her business installs and operates throughout Chicago.

One of the neat parts of beekeeping, for me at least, is seeing how various beekeepers in Chicago contribute to a hive's personality when they decide to paint them various colors, or mix and match different colors. 


Jana may live to regret her open call for art. But if you're a tagger or graffiti artist in Chicago, find yourself a Bike a Bee hive and show off your skills. I'd love it if this became a thing.
