Last year, PhanArt and the Phishsonian Institute teamed up to present “Below The Moss Forgotten,” a pop-up museum exhibit detailing Phish’s relationship to the Northwest at the first-ever Phish Studies Conference at Oregon State University told mostly through fan-created items. The exhibit marked the first step in establishing a relationship with OSU in regards to the PhanArt archive, establishing a home for the 3000 items that are already documented.
With everyone at home with time on their hands, the two organizations are taking the next step to try and make the archive as complete as possible. They are asking Phish fans at home to comb through any and all of their collections for things we might have missed, Stickers, Posters, T-Shirts, Coozies, anything and everything, no item too great or too small. As a reminder, the key guideline is fan-created items. Official items are not needed.
Whether its from 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0, fan made art spans across four decades and we want to ensure the completeness of this collection.
The Phishsonian Institute offers simple guidelines for fans – images created to use no less than 300 dpi and to send in TIFF format if possible. This will allow the ability to manipulate for future exhibitions and materials. All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more details, check out the video below.
Artist La Sil makes original designs from precious materials, creating artisan jewelry and accessories inspired by the movement of life, music and the ocean. Her body of work originates from life, movement studies and drawing, then made into artistic work that is worn. La Sil uses natural fibers, like feathers and leather to allow the work to dance and flow with a one of a kind uniqueness that brings nature to the wearer.
The music collection is inspired by listening to live music and traveling. These art pieces will play on forever and a percentage of sales will go to The Mockingbird Foundation to help raise money for music education for children.
The 5 elements of earth, water, air, fire and aether also inspire La Sil. The free flow design patterns represent these basic ideas as a primitive building block. Her ‘glass earth series’ is about the planet and its fragile ecosystem that lives harmonious throughout all living things organically, as well as an ocean series ‘wave’ collection that is inspired by living and working by the ocean.
Designs are fabricated in silver, gold and platinum metals incorporating precious gemstones, hand blown glass, authentic sea glass and high grade pearls. Most pieces are signed by the artist, hand engraved on the piece, or with a metal or leather tag with her artist name, La SiL.
La Sil is based in Massachusetts and has been making art inspired by Phish since the late 90’s and has a new line of jewelry and more to share with phans. Custom work is also available.
If you’re looking for something to pass the time, working on jigsaw puzzles together is a classic activity. Even if the kids roll their eyes, they’ll soon get into it and have fun that can even strengthen your family bonds. It’s also a good way to teach your kids, grandkids, parents or spouse a bit of lore about something you’re passionate about. Apple News even wrote a story about puzzling during this time.
Dan Skolnik at Shmoggers Den has written in Relix about the art of tape cover, and has taken the J-cards from tapes and created Phish tape cover puzzles and Dead puzzles. You can get tape cover art on shirts, posters, and mugs. Among the art you can find are a puzzle of “Best Reba’s Ever” and “Best Jibboo’s Ever,” as based on Phish.net and a few of Dan’s favorites.
