Civic Center Galleries, 1st and 3rd Floors

Name: Adapting to Wildfire

Dates: May 22 – October 12

Schedule: Open Monday – Friday from 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Closed weekends.

Our world is changing, and we must adapt to survive.

Fire Safe Marin and the Department of Cultural Services invited Bay Area artists to submit works of art exploring what it means to adapt to wildfire.

The artworks were juried by Emebet B. Korn, Founder and Director of DESTA Gallery in Mill Valley, who selected 58 works that were first exhibited at Ember Stomp, an annual Wildfire Prevention Festival at the Civic Center Fairgrounds on May 20.

This exhibition is intended to inspire thought and conversation about:

  • Our changing relationship with nature. 
  • The effects of climate change. 
  • How the threat of wildfire affects us individually and collectively.
  • Resilience of people and our environment. 

The Civic Center galleries are located on the first and third floor (Board of Supervisors Chambers gallery) in the Marin County Civic Center Building. 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael.
