As its first fundraising event, the Glendale Parks & Open Space Foundation collaborated with ART from the Ashes, a local nonprofit organization, to host an art exhibition to benefit the restoration of Deukmejian Wilderness Park.
The exhibition featured art pieces created from burned materials removed from the Park after the 2009 Station Fire. These materials were then turned into stunning works of art by over sixty local and regional artists. The event opened to the public on June 19, 2010 and ran through July 24, 2010. The location was the future home of the Museum of Neon Art at 216 South Brand Boulevard, across from the American at Brand, in downtown Glendale.
Proceeds from the event have gone to fund trails and open space programs in the park, as well as to assist with ongoing community-based restoration efforts.
