2018.10.06:  Opening Reception for From the Fire: A Community Reflects and Rebuilds

   

Join us on October 6, as we commemorate the one-year anniversary of the firestorm of October 2017, and mark the opening of our newest exhibition, From the Fire: A Community Reflects and Rebuilds.

The exhibition will examine the fires from personal, historical, and environmental perspectives, as well as highlight art’s power as a healing tool and creative outlet. View The Fire Wall and The Fire Collection, projects developed immediately after the fires under the banner of The Fire Project. Salvaged artifacts contributed by the community to The Fire Collection will also be exhibited, as well as a timeline tracing the advancement of the wildfires, efforts of the first responders, press and media coverage, individual heroes, and our rebuilding efforts over the last year. In addition, artists including Teresa Camozzi, Brian Fies, Kimberlee Koym-Murteira, Gregory Roberts, Martín Zúñiga, Adam Shaw, and Penny Wolin will present original works created in response to the fires.
