York Mediale welcomes all the family to The Plant Pavilion

Join us in the Artists Garden on 4 & 5 August as we welcome the arrival of the first part of a large-scale installation, The Pollinarium.

Loop.pH, the artists behind The Pollinarium, will build The Plant Pavilion – a large planting structure that will house two-hundred pollinating plants, which will grow and flourish over the summer to form the entrance of this immersive and family-friendly audio-visual installation.

Drop in anytime between 11.00am-5.00pm to see what’s going on, help with building and planting and find out more about this exciting new project.
