An exhibition exploring wildfire and climate change

Fires of Change is the new art exhibition scheduled for September – October 2015 at the Coconino Center for the Arts in Flagstaff, Arizona. The exhibition aims to explore how fire as an ecosystem process is impacted by climate change and societal development, and how wildfires in the southwestern United States have increased in number and capacity over the past several decades.

The Flagstaff Arts Council is seeking artists whose work is well suited for this program. Artists participating in Fires of Change will attend 2 or 3 full-day educational workshops. In the workshops, artists will learn directly from scientists and land managers about wildfire and its effects on the environment. Artists will learn how changing climate is impacting the spread and number of wildfires in the region, as well as how fire is managed. Workshops will take place in the field as well as in the classroom.

This call is now CLOSED. The deadline to apply was April 15, 2014.
