York St Mary's

York St Mary's is a contemporary arts venue housed in a beautiful medieval church which opens every summer.

Each year, York Museums Trust commissions an artist to create a site specific installation within this unique space. The artists find inspiration within the walls of the atmospheric building and their work transforms it anew each summer.

The church itself, which was deconsecrated in 1958, could date back as far as 1020, but the bulk of the building dates to the early 13th century, with 14th and 15th century modifications. It has the tallest steeple in York at 47 metres high.
