Big news, friends.
Art was found. In a coffee shop (somewhere in the eastern part of the USA).
This was piece number four – a mushroom. It was created in January, and dropped by a secret agent in early February.
The person who found it posted a photo on Instagram:
I received an email about it. The message was that the art was found, it brought joy, and offered an opportunity for conversation between a parent and a teenager. These are all good things.
Do you have questions about this project? Don’t hesitate to reach out. And I hope you find some art out there in this big world.
You might ask… what does the mushroom mean?
From my point of view, fungi are silent and helpful partners to so many things. They help trees grow, they help things decompose, and mushrooms can provide little careful homes for other creatures – you can often find small beetles or other critters living in between the gills of some species. Some mushrooms are also tasty to eat (but some are also poisonous, so BE CAREFUL). I hope that next time you are out and about in a forest, and the weather is right for it, you might be lucky enough to spot some lovely fungi. They are everywhere, you know!
