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 in what it hopes will be many.
In order to make this exhibit happen, the Phishsonian Institute is looking for donations to help fund materials needed for presentation. To donate, please visit https://www.gofundme.com/phish-in-the-pacific-northwest-exhibit&rcid=r01-155197382839-ef03bd656b3a4d02&pc=ot_co_campmgmt_w. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Hello! I’m Alex Grosby, general manager of the Phishsonian Institute. We’re under going some changes around here. Reworking the purpose of the site to fit some new projects and our new logo. Our new logo was designed by Adam Borden. When you’re done here you should go check out more of his work. In the mean time, you can either revisit my reviews of the first 100 Phish shows, enjoy our new in-depth venue write-ups, or check out what was played on the latest episode of This Week in Phish. We’ll have more fun things in the pipeline but for now, enjoy exploring!
