Riverside, CA – Beginning Saturday, February 22, 2020 the UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography will showcase FACING FIRE—Art, Wildfire, and the End of Nature in the New West. The exhibit focuses on fire not only as an “omen and elemental force” but also as “metaphor and searing personal experience.”
Over the previous two decades, wildfires along the west coast have exploded in scale, intensity and severity. There is a growing and powerful consensus that we have entered a new era where nature is unbalanced. Through their work, the artists of Facing Fire present incendiary work from active fire lines and psychic burn zones.
UCR ARTS: California Museum of Photography located in a two-building complex at 3824 and 3834 Main Street in downtown Riverside, is open to the public Tuesday through Thursday from noon to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 pm.
