Creating and cultivating projects to beautify Bangor, Maine.
A nonprofit driven to beautify Bangor
Bangor Beautiful was founded in 2022 with a mission of making Bangor a more beautiful place to live through public art, trees and gardens, and other beautification efforts.
THE GOOD OF THE HIVE
Our first major project was the installation of a multi-story bee mural in Downtown Bangor during the summer of 2023. The Good of the Hive is a global art project founded by artist Matt Willey to raise awareness about the collapse of bee populations around the world by hand painting 50,000 bees, the number in a healthy hive.
Be Part of a Brighter Bangor
You can help us bring our next project to life through volunteering your time, attending a committee meeting, or making a tax-deductible donation.
