For over two decades, Mildred's Lane has functioned as a working-living-researching experiment, encompassing a series of rarified experiences. Practitioners apply the tools for social engagement to landscape, vernacular architecture, installation art, sculpture, history, archaeology, natural sciences, utopian studies, and creative domesticity.
Mildred’s Lane is a landscape created by artists J. Morgan Puett and Mark Dion, deep in rural northeastern Pennsylvania bordering Narrowsburg, NY. Mildred’s Lane is a Pennsylvania Nonprofit Corporation, an environmentally progressive cultural site and residency centered around creative domesticating while hosting visionary thinkers worldwide. Read more about us and what we do on our website.
The Mildred Complex(ity) is the project space located on Narrowsburg’s Main Street, where these multiplicities converge, working-living-making-researching exhibitions, programs, and events with artists of Mildred’s Lane. These sites form an art complex(ity) questioning our impact as cultural producers in every aspect of life in the 21st century. Read more on our website.
Those who become involved embrace every aspect of collective existence through rethinking new modes of being in the world evoking a creative, social, civic, political, and critical entanglement questioning;
our relations to the environment
our relationships with each other
challenging systems of labor
forms of dwelling
inventing new design apparatuses, and importantly
critical and creative domesticating
all of which compose the Mildred’s Lane ethics of comportment – WORKSTYLES. Being is the practice, making this project one of the most innovative platforms in education and experience.
The costs are never-for-profit. Mildred’s Lane functions as a generosity project working collectively and generously toward forming a landscape trust. All proceeds go to the artist’s projects, maintenance, and repairs. We accept donations year-round. We are seeking adventurous individuals and institutional partnerships to collaborate with us, to get involved in programming, maintenance, and production of artist projects.
