Community Celebration & Free Day at the Museum

September 29, 2018
11am-1pm

Join us for a special day commemorating the anniversary of the Sonoma fires and the resiliency of community and special surprises…

Artists Roundtable at 12 noon:

Local artists who helped to organize From Fire, Love Rises Peter Hassen, Norma I. Quintana, and Bryan Tedrick, gather with the exhibition curators to discuss their personal fire experiences and the art each of them made in response. 

From Fire, Love Rises commemorates artists who were impacted by the October 2017 fires in Sonoma and Napa Counties. Many artists in these regions have relied on their artistic practice to recover from their losses and help restore the community around them. The exhibition features artists and writers who work in bronze, photography, ceramics, printmaking, new media, poetry, and prose to express their countless stories of loss, gratitude, and resiliency that have emerged in the year since the fires.

 

Admission to the museum is free all day. Coffee and muffins will be provided.
