ON FIRE | Temple Arts Gallery, corner of Virginia & Marin St
Friday Sept 8th, 5PM – Oct 14th
Fire is a critical agent of change on the California landscape. Wildfires are both destructive and restorative.
We find beauty in their terrible power. Our forests, chaparral and grasslands will inevitably burn. They need fire to thrive. The question is: Can we learn to live with wildfire?
ON FIRE explores the relationship between between people and wildfire.
The exhibition also examines the current tree mortality situation in the Sierra Nevada. More than 100 million trees have died because of drought and bark beetles.
