Located directly on the Hudson River, Riverside Park is especially vulnerable to the impending impacts of a changing climate, which includes a serious decline in pollinator species. In its role as a caretaker of green space, the Riverside Park Conservancy has brought to life a pollinator meadow, filled with native flowers and grasses that provide nectar, pollen, and a habitat for bees, butterflies, moths, and caterpillars.
This crucial moment in a transforming environment inspired “Pollinators.” As Riverside Park’s pollinator meadow supports the web of biodiversity that inhabits this region, artists respond, exploring both the visual language of flora and fauna, and the themes of conservation and change. Caution and optimism are both to be found. The weight of contemplating pollinator futures persists, but so does great energy and play as we welcome a new season of pollinators species.
