This week we are announcing the artists for the CEG/PhanArt Booze Cruise in New York City on Friday, July 26, featuring the music of Uncle Ebenezer! Tickets are available now and the first 30 to buy tickets will receive a free NYE 2018 linocut by Dave Thomas!

Our second artist is Setlist Tees! With a wide array of shirt designs that commemorate some of the biggest Phish (and Grateful Dead, MMJ, etc…) shows, you’ll find quite a few designs from The Baker’s Dozen for sale on the boat, among others.

Our first artist is Dave Russo! Dave’s prints feature his common style which was forged as a cartoonist documenting the scene since the Great Went. Dave will have several previous works of art, “Slave,” “Pageside,” “Crowd Control” and “Puppeteer” available as seen below.

More artists will be announced this week! For now, pick up your tickets in advance as this event will sell out!!!

Of note on the Mohegan Sun print is a geometric design inspired by Wombi Rock, a three-story high crystal mountain crafted of alabaster and more than 12,000 individual plates of hand-selected onyx, which can be found inside the casino at Mohegan Sun.

Dave Russo

These posters are drawn in Dave Russo’s common style which was forged as a cartoonist documenting the scene since the Great Went. While Dave is not primarily a poster artist, it’s hard to resist creating a commemorative piece for the shows he plans to attend. Along side the Mohegan Sun poster, there will also be a small run of playing cards. The image depicts phamiliar characters playing ancestral versions of their instruments, each representing kings of a different suit.  Originals will be released at PhanArt Boston. Prints are already available online but a portion will be reserved for the PhanArt shows. A portion of proceeds will go to Groovesafe and The Waterwheel Foundation. In addition to these pieces, the PhanArt exhibits will also feature several previous works.

Gallery: Inaugural Phish Studies ConferencE and Phish in the PNW Exhibit

Below The Moss Forgotten: Phish in the Pacific Northwest was a three-day pop-up museum exhibit presented by The Phishsonian Institute and PhanArt in the Horizon Lounge at Memorial Union. Held during the inaugural Phish Studies Conference, the exhibit represented shows from the band’s PNW debut in Ashland in 1991 to the band’s recent run at the Gorge in 2018.

Presented by Alex Grosby of the Phishsonian and Pete Mason of PhanArt, immense thanks is owed to the Oregon State School of History, Philosophy, and Religion, OSU Theatre, and the Benton County Historical Society for their strong support and all of the conference attendees for their kind words and enthusiasm for this inaugural project.

Private collectors and numerous artists contributed works to this vision to bring it to life. The exhibit made the Memorial Union a welcoming environment for scholarship and added a level of experience to the event. We hope to continue to present Phish exhibits in the near future. You can revisit the exhibit by viewing the slideshow below.

‘Phish in the Pacific Northwest’ Exhibit to be featured at Oregon State University Phish Studies Conference

The Phishsonian Institute, with Oregon State University Philosophy School of Phish, and PhanArt, is proud to announce “Below The Moss Forgotten: Phish in the Pacific Northwest,” a museum exhibit about the band and its relationship with the region.

From Ashland 1991 to The Gorge 2018, Phish’s time out here perfectly mirrors the band’s evolution and growth and will be represented by fan-created art and some choice artifacts. The exhibit will be presented in the Horizon Lounge of the Memorial Union on the OSU campus in Corvallis, Oregon. It will coincide with the first-ever Phish Studies academic conference on May 17-19, 2019. This is the Phishsonian’s first exhibit with PhanArt in what it hopes will be many.

In order to make this exhibit happen, the Phishsonian Institute and PhanArt are looking for donations to help fund materials needed for presentation. To donate, please visit Go Fund Me and support this archival endeavor. If you own a business and would like to sponsor this exhibit and the Phish Studies conference, please contact Stephanie Jenkins of Oregon State at stephanie.jenkins@oregonstate.edu.

Lastly, to understand Phish’s time in the Pacific Northwest, you just have to listen to the tapes. The Phishsonian Hour on JEMP Radio will be airing an 11-part series about Phish in the Pacific Northwest leading up to the conference. It airs every Thursday at 2 PM East/11 AM West, kicking off today with selections from Spring and Fall 1991. Please tune in.
