Dec 2 12:00PM // The Cleaners
With How Mushrooms Grow, artist collective Belly & Bones (Stef Choi and Tony Candelaria) create an interactive zoetrope sculpture that presents a fungi life cycle, from mycelia to mushroom. This larger-than-life zoetrope (four feet in diameter) presents a sequence of sculptures that sprout into mushrooms before your eyes.
Sunday afternoon, alongside the zoetrope exhibit, there's an afternoon fungiphile fair where you can scoop a mushroom growing kit, wild and cultivated mushrooms, make spore prints and sample mushroom, mold and yeast treats.
Noon-10pm: How Mushrooms Grow
2-6pm: Mushroom Fair

Oregon Mushroom Stories, a project of Ecotrust and Edible Portland, brings the surreal, fantastical beauty of mushrooms, and the knowledge of growers, foragers and fanatics out of the dark to a broad audience.
