Roadside Snacks, the newest exhibition by the Nomadic Fungi Institute drew a horde of curious supporters as part of the Art Car Museum's 20th year celebration.
The founder of the Institute, Dr. B F Smith was in attendance to answer questions about the exhibit and the characteristics of Nomadic Fungi. Below are snippets from his impression of the opening event:
I was most encouraged by the number of interested responses ... there were loads of questions with some people coming back two even three times with more queries. It seemed most people were curious how exactly nomadic fungi might impact their lives.
Yes, I think some people were initially taken aback upon encountering a science based exhibition at an art museum. But once they started looking and reading they quickly realized the significance of the exhibition.
It was gratifying to witness so many people taking time to closely examine the the NFI lab samples and read the documentation.
Overall, I felt the opening at the Art Car Museum was quite exciting. And as the exhibit shows through August, I hope it will continue to increase public awareness of nomadic fungi.
My sincere thanks to the Art Car Museum for providing NFI with this opportunity.
Roadside Snacks will be on display at the Art Car Museum through August 27th.
