These frequent visits by collaborating artists, writers, and critics at Mildred's Lane invite the public to participate in collective tasks and discussions, from hosting food-related events to explorations of creative processes related to the visual arts, writing, biology, and more.

Athena Kokoronis, a former Digestion Choreographer at Mildred’s Lane, will bring a series of choice edibles from Mildred’s Lane, where she has been house sitting. She has been spending her days hunting for mushrooms. Unlike foraging or gathering, hunting involves a component of chance and the unknown. She will bring what she finds in the woods of Mildred's Lane to the MoMA Studio for identification, along with a short presentation about the mushrooms that she has found through the years on the Lane. If edible mushrooms are found, a sampling will be offered to guests and attendants.

In conjunction with the exhibition MoMA Studio: Common Senses

These events are free and participation is on a first-come first-served basis.
