Conversations Through the Smoke: A Traveling Art Exhibition, Salmon, Idaho


The traveling art exhibition, Conversations Through the Smoke, aims to connect the creative voices of artists and fire practitioners from the Northern Rockies and beyond with those highly affected by recent fires. With extensive fires in Idaho and Montana in 2015 and 2017—and more to come— all of us must find ways to adapt to more large fires and smoke forecast for the future. This traveling show will be displayed alongside works made by artists in the Salmon, Idaho area.
To further the impact, this exhibition will be accompanied by discussions about fire science and management through panel discussions of practitioners and community stakeholders, lectures, and community art-making.

With Conversations Through the Smoke, NRFSN and other exhibit organizers seek to foster conversations that will help all of us adapt to our future living with fire and smoke.

The exhibit will be held at the Sacajawea Interpretive, Cultural & Education Center in Salmon on Friday, October 19, 2018. The exhibition will be on display from 2:00-8:00pm. A reception with light refreshments will take place from 5:30-8:00pm, including a "Conversations Through the Smoke" fire science presentation and open community discussion hosted by University of Idaho professors Penny Morgan and Stacy Isenbarger from 6:30-7:30pm. More details are available on the event flyer.
