SANTA BARBARA Artists are being sought to contribute to an exhibit that will showcase art created from raw materials obtained from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden after the Jesusita Fire.
Co-sponsored by the park and ART from the ashes, a collaborative of independent artisans and volunteers, the work will be displayed in the fall.
Sixty of the Botanic Garden's 78 acres were destroyed or damaged, and several structures, including the home of the park's director, were lost in the fire, which tormented the area in May.
Artists seeking to participate in the exhibit should send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
