The Magic of Mushrooms

Friday, June 23, 2017 at 8:00am to 5:00pm more dates through August 31, 2017

Mann Library, 2nd floor, Mann Library 237 Mann Drive, Ithaca, NY

Professor Kathie Hodge’s class, Magical Mushrooms, Mischievous Molds is not your typical biology class— it’s more like a narrated double-decker bus tour of the Kingdom of Fungi. Together, Dr. Hodge, her students and their T.A.’s  tell the stories of weird and world-sustaining mushrooms, pay homage to the noble works of yeasts, and explore humid thickets of medicinal molds. Over the course of the semester, they meet a host of subjects from the world of fungi, and then eat some of them.  
 Because the class aims to be approachable, it attracts a delightfully diverse group of students —hundreds of them.  For a pinch of extra credit, some seized the opportunity to make fungus-inspired art based on a fungus fact.  The wider Cornell community is cordially invited to enjoy a browse through their creative and exuberant work in this exhibit on display in the 2nd floor of Mann Library.  Come prepared to be intrigued!
