Mirang Wonne in exhibition opening September 17, 2022, at Palo Alto Art Center

Shipyard artist Mirang Wonne has been invited to participate in:

“Fire Transforms” September 17 – December 10, 2022
Palo Alto Art Center 
1313 Newell Rd, Palo Alto  CA 94303

From the Art Center’s schedule of upcoming shows:

“In California, wildfires resulting from extreme drought and climate warming trends are now a seasonal reality, resulting in increasingly tragic losses of property, forests, and human life. Just in the last decade, the term “fire season” has emerged to describe the now-common reality of extended periods of heat and wind-driven wildfires. Recent catastrophic fires in the North Bay, Sierras, and the Central Valley have had a direct impact on the Bay Area through the oppressive and dangerous smoke that has blanketed our region, creating a new public health crisis. This exhibition will feature artists from around the region and country who explore the impact of fire through artwork created in a wide range of media. This exhibition will be guest curated by Rina C. Faletti, founding curator of Art Responds.”
