About the event
This exhibit, called “Up From the Ashes” will honor and share the stories from the Echo Mountain fire complex and its aftermath, exploring the human conditions of grief, loss, healing regrowth, compassion and selflessness in the face of this terrible local disaster.
It is first and foremost a collection of stories, the difficult impact on the lives of so many community members is immense and continues to be a struggle even 2 years later. This exhibit strives to tell and preserve these stories and also to show the shimmering light of hope and rebirth and how far this brave and resilient community has come. This exhibit includes objects pulled out of the ashes and photography by Bruce MacGreger, who approached this project with all of his heart and skill to capture some very powerful moments.
Stories are powerful. And art is healing.
When this exhibit concludes, all of the stories, much of the photography and some of the items from the fire will be donated to the North Lincoln County Historical Museum for preservation and a future exhibit
This exhibit has been brought to you by the Lincoln City Cultural Center.
The Newport Visual Arts Center is open Wednesdays-Sunday 12-4 pm. For more information at www.coastarts.org/vacevents
