About The Mushroom City Art Festival
Mushroom City Art Festival is going into its fifth year! Originally, hosted in 2013 as Mushroom City Arts, we were a one-day event at the Baltimore Free Farm. In 2014, Mushroom City Art Festival was a weekend long event held at the Free Farm and Gallery 788, and in 2015 in collaboration with Nature Art in the Park, MCAF was held for the first time outside at Leakin Park. This year Mushroom City Art Festival is collaborating again with Nature Art in the Park to integrate outdoor mushroom art installation into the nature art trails curated by NAP.
At Mushroom City Art Festival, you can experience mushroom foraging, nature art trail walks, lectures, live music, all ages art workshops, interactive art installations and more!!
Sculptures, paintings, film, and music inspired by this mysterious mycelial life form will be featured alongside hands on workshops and educational discussions revealing the many real world applications for mushroom cultivation in contemporary urban life. Mushroom City is also a space to build community aligned with and beside the wonders of our natural world.
