Best Bee’s Knees 

Becca Barnet

Staff Pick

It takes a particularly ambitious artist to preserve 500 bees for a temporary installation at the Halsey, but Becca Barnet did just that for the gallery’s annual membership party last year. The Rhode Island School of Design-trained illustrator is also a certified taxidermist, so she gives life to death, and her pieces have shown everywhere from a holiday display window at Rebekah Jacob Gallery to the Ordinary. “I don’t think it’s as gross and creepy and weird as everybody thinks it is,” she told us back in December. “I think it’s beautiful and can be really honorable to nature if you do it in a tasteful way and if you do it with a lot of grace and respect.”
