208 Broadway Blvd SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102
516 ARTS and Exhibit 208 present an artist talk with Cross Pollination curator Valarie Roybal on her work from the series «Bee Dreams,» on view at Exhibit 208 October 7-28.

Roybal says, «Bees, existing since the time of the dinosaurs, have developed such a symbolic relationship with flowers that the two have adapted together throughout time. I am interested by the contrast between the seeming stillness of flowers and the energetic engagement of bees in nature… Do bees sleep? And if they do, do they dream? And if they dream, do they dream of flowers? With these questions in mind, I have discovered that bees do indeed sleep after a busy day. I have read that there is what is called 'memory reactivation' during sleep. What does that mean? Is there learning? Recollection? A genetic transference of memory and knowledge? Is there processing, evolution, resolution? With the series Bee Dreams, I have contemplated these ideas and created anthropomorphic imaginings of what may occur during a bees' resting state.»

This event is in conjunction with «Cross Pollination» on view at 516 ARTS through November 11, 2017. Info at
