Mildred's Lane

In 8th grade I tried to get my name changed to Millie Lane. It's mildly pornographic I now realize. Mildred's Lane is not a 13 year old girl but rather a gorgeous restored farmhouse that holds the Mildred's Lane Historical Society and Museum and artist colony in Pennsylvania. I find the philosophy of Mildred's Lane and the scenery equally inspiring.

"The core of the project practice and educational philosophy at Mildred's Lane is an attempt to collectively create new modes of being in the world – this idea incorporates questions of our relation to the environment, systems of labor, forms of dwelling, all of which compose an ethics of comportment – and are embodied in workstyles."
