Art Car Museum has asked NFI to install a new exhibition in their gallery. Below is the press release:
The Nomadic Fungi Institute presents, Roadside Snacks, a survey of eyewitness accounts and laboratory tests pertaining to the proliferation of nomadic fungi. The Nomadic Fungi Institute is a pseudoscience based "Institution" established to investigate and document sightings of giant mushrooms growing on automobiles.
NFI also conducts laboratory experiments to ascertain the probability and rate at which these parasitic fungi will spread and inevitably impact the American transportation system. Dr. Brad Ford Smith founded the Nomadic Fungi Institute in 2013 and has been fastidiously pursuing all leads pertaining to these mutated fungi.
The opening is Saturday, June 3rd and runs through August. Drop by and find out if you should be concerned about the knocking under your hood.

During the Nomadic Fungi Spore Sprouting Test the staff at NFI were click, click, clicking away, filling up one memory card after another with photographs in hopes of capturing every nuance within each spore sprouting jar. Click, click click. Click, click click. A digital mountain of photographs.

This film clip was taken during the Nature of Cordyceps exhibition held at the Gallery at North Haven Gardens in Dallas Texas. It was the first public exhibition of documents pulled from the Nomadic Fungi Institute archives and focused as an introduction to what cordyceps are and how they could be related to nomadic fungi.

Last month during a rare outing our Director, the obsessively dedicated and sun deprived research junkie, Dr. B.F. Smith PhD ended up at the photography studio of the very talented and gracious Kent Barker.
Kent has been working on a series he calls The Creatives. In this series he is documenting a cross section of the creative community living in Dallas Texas. This community includes painters, designers, architects, photographers, dancers, writers and now one musty smelling archivist from the Nomadic Fungi Institute.
Dr. Smith is pictured here in a freshly cleaned lab coat proudly displaying three jars containing successfully sprouted Nomadic Fungi. The staff at NFI are very proud of this portrait and are truly amazed at Kent's ability to capture the more dignified side of our Director.
