Back in July, Teri attended an art show dedicated to the cult TV classic (and now Netflix original series) Arrested Development curated by the Beehive Society. About 3-4 times a year the ladies of the Beehive Society host pop culture themed art shows featuring 30 or so San Francisco Bay Area artists. Since being founded in 2013 they’ve held a majority of their shows at Asterisk (formerly a small gallery in the Mission). “No Touching” was their first show at a new location, Heron Arts and it had a HUGE turnout!
I’ve been attending Beehive Society curated art shows since January 2015 for their “Springfield, Springfield” Simpsons tribute art show. What I love is not just the theme of their art shows (such as Parks and Recreation, Party Mixtapes, etc) but the variety in the pieces by the artists ranging from sculptures, traditional painting, graphic design, and digital prints. They also do a great job incorporating QR codes in to the viewing experience. It’s not necessary to enjoy the artwork but if you don’t know the Arrested Development reference scanning the code on your phone sends you straight to a clip it.
Beehive Society shows are free to attend and generally offer wine for potential buyers to drink while they peruse the art; donations are encouraged and recommended! A fan favorite is always the photo booth with custom props made specially for each event. This time around they even had some nice artisan ice cream and a projector playing classic episodes from the show.

Beehive Society’s next art show looks to be Harry Potter themed so stay tuned!
