ART from the ashes Seeds of Regrowth Exhibition features over 90 works of art created by California based artists predominately from Shasta County, group installations and collaborative projects from U-Prep and Enterprise High School students. All individual works incorporate materials reclaimed from fire-site locations or are inspired by imagery in the aftermath of the Carr fire. By integrating these materials and imagery into the artistic process, these works symbolize resilience, renewal and embody the transformative power of art.
