Join Inlandia for the opening exhibit of Facing Fire at the UCR California Museum of Photography on February 29th at 6pm.
Fire as omen and elemental force, as metaphor and searing personal experience -- these are the subjects explored by the artists of Facing Fire. California's diverse ecologies are fire-prone, fire-adapted, even fire-dependent. In the past two decades, however, West Coast wildfires have exploded in scale and severity. There is a powerful consensus that we have entered a new era. The artists of Facing Fire bring us incendiary work from active fire lines and psychic burn zones. They face fire, sift its aftermath, and struggle with the implications.
The UCR Museum of Photography is located at 3824 Main St, Riverside, CA 92501.

“The Royal Elephant and the Hungry Little Dog” from India is an ancient Jataka Tale of friendship. After Karen shares this story, Nicole will treat the audience to a puppetry workshop exploring how puppets show emotion.
In a fresh new approach to Inlandia’s First Sundays programming at Riverside Art Museum, Master puppeteer Nicole Cloeren joins our beloved storyteller Karen Rae Kraut for a powerful mix of interactive storytelling and puppetry. Karen’s stories and Nicole’s puppets will open your eyes to new ways of interpreting the world and open your hearts to a powerful form of play. Nicole transforms everyday objects into unique and delightful characters to teach audience members basic puppeteering skills through interactive participation.
Karen Rae Kraut has been blending story, song and creative movement in schools, libraries, museums and theatres from California to East Tennessee since 1990. She has toured for the Smithsonian, and was commissioned by the McCallum Theatre to create a storyteller’s version of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Karen’s CD, Cooler Water Cora and Other Stories, is the winner of an iParenting Media Award for Audio Excellence and a National Parenting Publications Honors Award. She has performed for Riverside’s First Sundays program since its inception in 1997.
