Tomorrow, 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 which 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, a few Lexington artists are on board.

Starting a little after midnight on Saturday, works will be stowed around the Horse Capital of the World.

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.

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

Happy foraging, y’all.
