This special exhibit at The Arts Center presents a visual essay on fire and fossil fuels.
Experience the work of Portland painter David Carmack Lewis, who explores the deep human connection to fire and how it transforms landscapes and now the climate itself. Through his work, Lewis hopes to engage the community on the issues of fossil fuels, climate change, and how art and science can work together to promote education and change.
The Corvallis Sustainability Coalition is co-sponsoring this special exhibit with The Arts Center.
