About The Event
Pollinator Power! is an immersive installation that celebrates the miracle and interdependence of pollination, a system in which flowers and pollinators each provide what the other needs. The artworks on exhibit were created by a diverse group of artists, ages 6 to 26 years old, working together at Mindy Flexer Art School and Allens Lane Art Center, under the direction of Mindy Flexer and her assistant teacher, Molly Hynes.
By creating a community based on respect, love, and belonging, young artists were able to unleash the power of their own minds and experience how this increases exponentially with collaboration and teamwork. Just like the work of bees, cooperative action on any scale can impact the challenges caused by the climate change emergency. Pollinator Power! is an invitation to use the boundless energy of the human spirit to envision and co-create the future of our precious precious planet.
