Leave a comment


The Mushroom Festival was a one-day event at The Bookcase on March 17, 2016.

Mycologist Dr. R. Greg Thorn tells the audience about samples from the UWO Biology collection. “Mushrooms are a communication system, like the Internet, only millions of years old.”

Paul Chartrand‘s scultures, drawings, and book work; Simone Sciascetti’s sculptures, George Tzanetakis, Tina Pearson and Paul Walde (LaSaM’s Experimental Music Unit)’s Music for Mycologists, Christopher Kennedy‘s Mycological Provisions, and Alexis William‘s Mushroom Oracle.
