“Place to Bee” (2021) four color screen print on French paper, 18”x 24” by Michael Iver Jacobsen   From the artist: “Whether it be an actual park or in a vacant lot in the city prairie space where tall grass and wildflowers grow has always been a favorite place of mine to be and served as inspiration for this illustration. Place to Bee was originally created for the 2021 Posters for Parks series in Minneapolis as a 4 color screen print. Follow Michael on instagram @iverillo for more illustrations and drawings.”
