Endangered Species Series from Jelly Belly® Art Collection

What do presidents, masterpieces and Hollywood icons have in common with endangered species? They are all subjects of Jelly Belly Art, the colorful mosaic-like portraits handmade entirely from thousands of colorful Jelly Belly® jelly beans. Now, this beloved art form takes inspiration from endangered species as Jelly Belly creates a new series of portraits of some threatened animals from land, sea and air for the company’s private collection. The series is at COSI now through September 7, 2015. Jelly Belly is touring the portraits around the United States for display at museums and through animal conservation programs. The collection at COSI consists of portraits of the following graceful creatures: Great Green Macaws, Rockhopper Penguin, Grizzly Bear, Bengal Tiger, Giant Panda, and an Orangutan.

Jelly Belly artist in residence, Kristen Cumings, creates series of Jelly Belly Art including The Masterpieces of Jelly Belly Art displayed at COSI in 2012. Since the 1980s, Jelly Belly Candy Company has commissioned artists to create Jelly Belly Art. Each work can use upwards of 10,000-14,000 Jelly Belly beans. Individual beans are placed by hand and applied to the large canvas.
