DESCRIPTION

ART from the ashes and the Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation are pleased to announce June 19th as the grand opening of the exhibition to benefit the rehabilitation of Deukmejian Wilderness Park.  The exhibition will take place at the planned future home of the Museum of Neon Art on South Brand Boulevard in Glendale and it will run through July 24th.

An impressive collective of over 60 artists have donated over 120 one-of-a-kind works of art from debris gathered from the Park after the devastating Station Fire of August 2009.  From these raw bits of metal and organic remnants of ash and wood; scrap metal becomes jewelry or sculpture, wood becomes a canvas for painting and ash creates glaze for ceramics.

The Station Fire broke out on the afternoon of August 26, 2009.  The blaze devastated over 250 square miles of the Angeles National Forest and was the largest in Los Angeles County recorded history. To protect surrounding communities from the fire, nearly all 709 acres of the bordering Deukmejian Wilderness Park in the City of Glendale were strategically burned. The resulting destruction devastated the plant and animal life that once flourished in the Park, compromised hiking trails and closed the park to the community.

 

Throughout this exhibition, ART from the ashes and the Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation hope to inspire the community and share unique works of art that transcend their original form.

Grand opening: June 19th 5-9pm

Regular gallery hours 12-6pm
