Columbia-Greene Media is reporting the Thomas Cole National Historic Site in Catskill on August 7, will unveil The Pollinator Pavilion, a new outdoor architectural sculpture designed for the site by artists Mark Dion and Dana Sherwood. Combining the artists’ practice of creating site-specific installations and their fascination with nature, the interactive artwork is a fantastical architectural setting in which individuals can share moments with hummingbirds while exploring a nurturing relationship with nature. The piece reflects Thomas Cole's fascination with the natural world, architecture and architectural features in the landscape. The Pollinator Pavilion is more than 21 feet high, constructed of painted wood, and draped with flowers, plants and paintings by the artists, designed as much for hummingbirds as for people. The open-air public artwork is set amid the six-acre historic site in Catskill. Entry into the pavilion will be paced to allow guests to experience it one by one.
