Sep 15, 2018 -- As the one year anniversary of last year's October firestorm approaches, local artists are planning commemorative events. They've made jewelry and mosaics out of salvaged items, taken photographs, and created images inspired by their experiences with fires. A storybook at the Ukiah library is in the works, as is a large mosaic that will be unveiled at the Redwood Valley Grange.

We'll hear from artists and organizers about how they've been affected by fire, and their efforts to heal and help their neighbors heal by creating arwork and performances.

You also have the option of listening to a lightly edited, two-part recording of the hour and a half long event. None of the content has been removed, just some administrative shuffling and mike handling noise. I also adjusted the levels somewhat, so the three speakers are at similar volumes.
