Intelligent fungi is a three month exhibition and workshop series to celebrate the fungal wisdoms and learn from fungi, our greatest teachers to build, nourish, and heal. Programming is free and open to all.
We invite you to take a self guided tour through the mushroom life cycle, watch mycelium running, or take a break at our Mycolibrary while appreciate some fungal arts and furniture.
WORKSHOPS & events
Get together with our guest mycologists, artists, citizen scientists, and interdisciplinary educators, get hands-on with water restoration, experiment with mushroom paper making, survey the mushroom species on Governors Island, and more.
Fascinated by fungal intelligence, we study the potentials of teaming with fungi to address the toughest environmental challenges and explore mycoremediation at community and personal levels.
