Where: Reynolds Gallery

Event Description: The MSC Visual Arts Committee is proud to present The Fragile Bee:
Works by Nancy Macko , an exhibition looking at the relationship between technology and nature
as art. Focusing on the honey bee, this exhibition seeks to explore the power of eco-feminism

with close-up photography, Macko is able to express the interconnection of life with art and
nature.

been teaching and producing art since the 1980’s–showcasing her work in more than 140
exhibitions. Using multiple mediums, her work is a striking integration of science and art
depicting the complexity of the natural world. In addition to teaching and creating artwork,
Macko is highly involved in museum and curatorial work. She has held state and national
leadership positions as an advocate for the arts. The Fragile Bee: Works by Nancy Macko is
