Somerville Community Growing Center, 22 Vinal Ave., is the city’s favorite volunteer-run green space.

As part of ArtBeat 2020, the Center will install an art/science exhibit, Pollination Is (a Game of) Chance, on its street-side fence. The exhibit will feature large sculptures of pollinators made out of willow branches and fabric, and placards that passers-by can read that explain the element of chance in the pollination process.

The exhibit will be on view from Saturday, July 11th to Saturday July 18th.

The exhibit is designed by Liza Kitchell with the assistance of Amy Mertl and Claire O’Neill, the Center’s resident pollinator experts.
