Threats to pollinator health are intense and varied, from habitat loss and climate change to diseases and pesticides. A summer exhibit in the Mann Gallery, PolliNation: Artists Crossing Borders with Scientists to Explore the Value of Pollinator Health showcases the results of a multi-year collaboration between Cornell entomologists, U.K. based scientists and Welsh artists who, crossing national and disciplinary boundaries, work to reveal and celebrate the beauty and importance of pollinators, and how their fate is linked to our planet, and to our own.
This exhibit is a collaboration between Mann Library, the Cornell Department of Entomology and the University of Wales, Trinity St. David.
On Friday, June 7, we will celebrate the exhibit with a special lecture by Cornell entomologist Scott McArt, a reception in the Mann Gallery, and a garden tour introducing participants to the Cornell Botanic Gardens' new “Botanic Buzzline” pollinator walkway. All events are free and open to the public.
