On Saturday, June 8, you could find one-of-a-kind, mushroom-inspired art on your morning walk.

Game of Shrooms is a global art scavenger hunt that began in 2019. Hundreds of artists sign up to hide unique, fungi-full works in their area and give clues to their whereabouts on social media. This year, several Middle Tennessee artists are on board.

A couple pieces will be stowed around East Nashville and in nearby towns like Franklin, Smyrna, and Murfreesboro. Check out the map of participating artists and follow them on social media — they’ll likely leave hints throughout the day about where their work can be found.

Participating local artists include:

  • Chauncey Saurus + Rachael Johnson | East Nashville
  • Katelin Schutt | Franklin
  • Joelle Platz | Smyrna
  • Little Earthling + Bryan Wilkerson | Murfreesboro
  • Ace Arcana | Springfield

If you find a piece, be sure to tag or message the artist to let them know.
