Mildred’s Lane is a rustic, 96-acre site deep in the woods of rural northeastern Pennsylvania, in the upper Delaware River Valley, which borders New York state. It is an ongoing collaboration between J. Morgan Puett, Mark Dion (artist behind The Life of a Dead Tree, on view at MOCA beginning May 24th 2019), their son Grey Rabbit Puett, and their friends and colleagues. It is a home and an experiment in living. Mildred’s Lane attempts to coevolve a rigorous pedagogical strategy, where a working-living-researching environment has been developed to foster engagement with every aspect of life.
The entire site has become a living museum, or rather – a new contemporary art complex(ity). It is now important to sidestep the debates around what is art ( or design, architecture and fashion) in order to activate these turbulent multiplicities. It is more a question of praxis and action, is it in an institution? Storefront? A gallery? Deep in the woods? At Home?
The Mildred’s Lane site is a home where the Artist/Practitioner, the Student and the Institution have collapsed roles as they attempt to coevolve with an emergent strategy.

There are daily activities including intensive workshops, lectures, and seminars by dynamic contributing guests, thinkers and creative producers that outnumber fellows by three to one. Everyone works together – in collaboration – on large-scale artist site works. Together guests conceptualize and produce socials that engage town interactions and local government. Visitors are inter-connected, international characters from all disciplines that help guide you into creating new sustainable habits for the future through the philosophical, experience-based teachings of workstyles. Importantly, you will make lifelong friends and attachments, especially to Mildred’s Lane.
