Proceeds from the exhibition will support restoration efforts at Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, a touchstone for the resident community and visitors to the region.
“While the park, surrounding lands, staff and local communities suffered immense loss in the aftermath of the Carr fire, we are making daily strides in the reopening of key destinations within Whiskeytown National Recreation Area. The National Park Service welcomes the opportunity to partner with ART from the ashes to further engage the community and come together to support the regeneration of trails and open space within the park. Their mission of using a creative platform to connect art, community and ecology aligns with our commitment to providing a memorable recreation experience,” Josh Hoines, Superintendent Whiskeytown National Recreation Area
