Rising from the Fire is a continuation of the Tahoe Activist Artists’ mission to bring an empowering message to our local community. “Using the image of a phoenix rising from the ashes as a metaphor for positive transformation, we are presenting a vision of hope,” says Shelley Zentner, founder of the Tahoe Activist Artists. “But that hope cannot be passive. We seek to galvanize our community to action.”

“The art will continue to tackle challenging subject matters, which we hope will inspire our guests to leave the exhibition with a new perspective,” explained Shelley Zentner “Our aim is to empower our community to stand up, to use their voices and actions to create the change they want to see. It’s too easy to become despairing in times like these, to feel overwhelmed and helpless. If we stand together and support each other’s work, we can change the world.”
