Notes: This piece was created for Little Pink House Gallery’s show, also titled Renewal.  The focus of the show was Malden, Washington, where 85% of the town was destroyed by wildfires in 2020.  The administration then, wouldn’t release emergency funds due to political reasons.  The Biden Administration recently released them.
