benefit project for victims of North Bay Fires

In October of 2017, wildfires ripped through Northern California destroying everything in its path with 8,900 structures destroyed, 44 deaths, and more than $3 billion in losses. More than 100,000 people were displaced from their homes, and countless numbers of people have lost absolutely everything. And while homes, businesses, and dreams will need to be restored, we did find Art Out of Ashes -- and now you have found us.

When the fires and smoke eventually cleared, they revealed a cemetery of a wide range of vehicles across the land. We felt one way we could communicate the peoples unique losses was through photographs of over one-hundred different vehicles which are individualized but represent such differences. We’ve captured the souls of these vehicles through the incredible lens of talented photographer Scott Maddern and have turned the photos into artwork for you to help raise money for the victims still struggling.

We have produced various collections of vehicle art for you ranging from exclusive small sets to larger sets that will only be available for purchase at an auction to take place at a Vineyard in Sonoma County. After the auction, some of the artwork and a photo book will also be available for purchase on this website.

The proceeds will go to benefit the victims of the fires through our partnership with the Sonoma County Resilience Fund to address the mid to long-term needs of those impacted by these devastating fires.
