On Saturday, June 8, you have a chance to find one-of-a-kind, mushroom-inspired art hidden around Madison.

Game of Shrooms is a global art scavenger hunt that began in 2019. Hundreds of artists sign up to hide unique, fungi artwork in their area.

This year, several local artists are on board:

  • Bridget Doxtater
  • Brooke Rogers
  • Caleb Coopman
  • Jennifer Falkowski
  • Lucky8neko
  • Natalie Jo Wright
  • Tanya Cunningham/Fridamar Textiles

Check out the map of participating artists and follow them on social media where you may find hints about where their work can be found.

If you find a piece, you’re welcome to keep it, just be sure to tag or message the artist to let them know. Bonus: Send us a photo of your fungus findings, and we might share it on our socials.

Want to get involved? There’s still time to sign up as an artist. You can create and hide as many pieces as you like.
