"We need to have a paradigm shift in our consciousness. If we don’t get our act together and come in commonality and understanding with the organisms that sustain us today, not only will we destroy those organisms, but we will destroy ourselves."
Mush Love is a brand new arts experience set to premiere in Calgary, Alberta this July 29th and 30th at the beautiful Nvrlnd Arts Foundation, Boutique event space. Located in the historic neighbourhood of Ramsay / Inglewood, Mush Love aims to bring together Calgarians in celebration of the fabulous world of fungi and the magic of mushroom culture. The event is a dynamic and unique platform that combines an inclusive, group art exhibition with a mini-mushroom-inspired market by local creators, growers and educators.
We think this is the perfect incubator to activate the Calgary arts community while also bringing awareness and appreciation to the rising tide of mushroom culture, cultivation and curiosity.
Saturday, July 29th, 2023 – 7 PM till Midnight
On Saturday evening, the Mush Love Arts exhibit will open for a very special, invitation-only event. This intimate engagement will feature many of the artists in attendance, live music and special performances, a licensed bar with artisan goodies and a chance to connect with a community passionate about fungi and mushroom culture.
Sunday, July 30th, 2023 – 12 PM till 5 PM
The Mush Love Arts exhibit will be open to the general public for free viewing alongside a special mini-mushroom-inspired market taking place in the Nvrlnd outer courtyard. From arts and crafts to mushroom produce and goodies, drop by and enjoy this free, family-friendly event in the heart of historic Ramsay / Inglewood.
We are proud to be using Inglewood’s premier artist destination, The Nvrlnd Boutique. The space itself boasts a sleek, modern 1200 sq. ft. footprint. The gorgeous custom ceiling treatment is not only aesthetically breathtaking, but it also performs the essential duty of changing the interior acoustics. We feel blessed to have access to an art space like this in our great city. For directions click here.
Bringing this kind of unique, artist-run event to life takes a whole lot of time and dedication but it also takes a few old-fashioned dollars to make it really shine. If you have a company or project that aligns with our deep love of mushrooms, then we’d love to hear from you and talk a bit more about some of our sponsorship options.
