Slow Art Walk: Facing Fire

Thursday, September 3, 2020, 6pm - 7pm

FREE Virtual Live Event

Every First Thursday at 6pm for Riverside ArtsWalk, let UCR ARTS lead you on a virtual Slow Art Walk through artworks from the exhibitions and collections at California Museum of Photography and Culver Center of the Arts. What does that mean? Slow down, look closely at art, and talk about the experience with others.


On September 3, join UCR ARTS and Gluck Student Fellow, Cambra Sklarz, in a guided discussion of works in the exhibition, Facing Fire: Art, Wildfire, and the End of Nature in the New West.  We have all seen images of the horrible destruction that wildfires have caused in California. Can this kind of devastation ever be a source of creativity?  Through close looking and an opportunity to share your thoughts, this dialogue is a chance to consider how artists have channeled disaster into compelling works of art.


Do you have your own fire photography you’d like to share with others during the event? Let us know on the form and we’ll contact you to gather prior to the event!
