Exhibition Opening: “Rethinking Fire”

  •  10.16.21
     9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Rethinking Fire explores the ecological role of fire and the human impacts on forests amid a changing climate and the rise of intense wildfires. Artist Bryan David Griffith uses fire itself to create original paintings, sculptures and site-specific installations, transforming the gallery into a visually stunning, reflective space. Commentary from leading scholars in the fields of fire ecology, forestry and climate science accompany Griffith’s work and look to promote forest health and inspire fire-resilient communities. 

“Rethinking Fire” is made possible with support from Alex Hodge Construction, Cascade A&E, Land Rover Portland, Tonkon TorpVernam Crane Services and James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation
