Art Helps Illuminate and Heal After Fires

The phrase "second responders" has been used about artists, mental health professionals and others who have been helping our community cope with grief and loss since the North Bay fires.

  An exhibition currently on view at the Chroma Gallery in Santa Rosa features work by artists processing their own reactions to October's events, and using art to help heal their community. J. Mateo Baker paid the gallery a visit and has this report.

Here's more information about Healing by Art: After the Fires, so you can plan a visit.

Learn more about The Fire Project at the Museums of Sonoma County, including The Fire Wall: Sharing Our Experience and The Fire Collection: Preserving Our Stories.
