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 Pacific 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 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 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. Whether its from 1.0, 2.0 or 3.0, fan made art spans decades and we want to ensure the completness of this collection. As a reminder, the key guideline is fan-created items. Official items are not needed. The Phishsonian Institute has the following guidelines for fans - for 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 email@example.com. Attachments should use the following file naming format: ARTIST_SHOW_YEAR.tiff. Example would be Bullock_Gorge_2016.tiff. For more details, check out the video below.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed just about $1,500,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
