Fire Story Sketches at the Land and Me Event

 

After the devastating 2017 firestorms here in Sonoma County some of us sketch artists were compelled to record the stories of our land and people who were so dramatically impacted. As time went on we sketched the rebuilding efforts, and finally a year later, the anniversary events.
And now we’re happy to announce the first pubic showing of the entire body of fire story sketches at an interactive performance event, created by local artists, musicians,dancers, and thinkers, featuring live music, interactive creative experiences, dance poetry and participatory performance.
Carole Flayerty and I will be there to talk with people about our process of reportage sketching, recording the experiences of the fire through the filter of personal experience. I hope you can join us at. . .
