Ashes Fell Like Snow Public Exhibition in Santa Rosa

For the past six months, I was working on mounting a public exhibition to mark the one year anniversary of the North Bay Fires of 2017. I felt it was important to give the community of Santa Rosa an occasion to mark the anniversary, to provide them a chance to pause and reflect on their losses as well as to celebrate the renewal and regrowth of the past year. Doing so involved securing permission from the City of Santa Rosa, raising the funds to underwrite the exhibition, working with the local vendors and fabricators to create the assets for the exhibitions and putting together a crew of laborers and volunteers to install and de-install the exhibition.

With generous funding from Luther Burbank Savings, Art in Public Places Committee of Santa Rosa, private donors, and with help from many volunteers, we were able to mount the exhibition in Old Courthouse Square December 6-29, 2018.
