Sonoma,
History Museum of Sonoma County
Event Description

 Many of us experienced evacuations and losing our homes during the October wildfires. Even if we were far enough away from the fires, we all have our own experiences from the disaster. The Museum wants to collect the community\\\'s creative reflections and personal stories of the 2017 wildfires and their aftermath in an online searchable display and digital repository called the Fire Wall on the Museum\\\'s website. We would also like to hear from first responders. Join artist Mario Uribe for an afternoon workshop to make artwork and writings of your experiences and feelings about the fires. All ages are welcome; no skills are needed. The artwork or writing that you make at the workshop can be submitted to museum staff to be scanned and uploaded to the Fire Wall.

Born in Southern California, Mario grew up in Mexico in a home surrounded by Japanese art that his parents had collected during their time in Japan in the 1930s. With a formal Western art education and an even more formal immersion into traditional Japanese art, Mario has reconciled the two traditions and his artwork and life are influenced by both. Mario is well-known locally for his public art and for starting Artstart, a program that hires student artists to design and paint public art projects around the county. He and his wife, Liz Uribe, created SOFA, an artists\\\' studio space in Santa Rosa.

This is a drop-in workshop. General admission applies. Members and children 12 and under are free.

Event Sponsors receive two tickets and recognition in the Museum\\\'s marketing materials. Sponsorships are fully tax-deductible.

Fee: $0.00
