Who & What: The Beehive Design Collective is a wholly volunteer enterprise to increase awareness regarding environmental degradation through illustrations. A reception was held for the Beehive and provided this group the opportunity to discuss their latest campaign, "The True Cost of Coal." The Beehive visited Appalachia to hear the stories and concerns from residents there regarding mountaintop removal. The Beehive created a poster, which took two years to complete. The poster is an engrossing portrayal of the natural history of Appalachia, the industrialization process in the region, the backlash against pollution and unsafe-working conditions for miners, and the artists' hope for future revitalization of the communities and ecosystems.
