From 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m., community members are invited to the craft room in Robert A. Lee Recreation Center (220 S. Gilbert St.) to make their own bees with recycled materials! The bees will be installed in the Discovery Garden after the workshop. The Bee Project was created by artist Elena V. Smyrniotis and it offers an exciting interactive and collaborative experience. This event can be enjoyed by people of all ages and is brought to you by Arts Share and the Grant Wood Art Colony. 

At 6:30 p.m., head to Iowa City Municipal Airport (1801 South Riverside Drive) for fun activities before the movie.
