1982 and "Bee"-yond: Back and Buzzing Around Utah 

After its eight-month run in DC, the exhibit returned to Utah in early 1982. Because of the exhibit’s continued popularity, the Alice Gallery at the Glendinning Mansion displayed a selection of items, including original exhibit pieces along with newly purchased items. 

Following this month-long display, The Grand Beehive began touring the state for the next three years through the Traveling Exhibitions Program. A service of the Utah Division of Arts and Museums, this statewide educational outreach program allows schools, museums, and galleries to host exhibits and their accompanying educational materials at their institutions. The program’s goal is to “provide public access to quality visual art, nurture understanding of diverse art forms and cultures, promote creativity and encourage cultural activities in local communities.”

Why do you think the exhibit was so popular?
