Art Project Pays Homage to Carr Fire Heroes

Faces of Redding features portraits of Carr Fire heroes painted by local artists.

A new art display in Redding is highlighting the community's resilience after the Carr Fire.

It's called Faces of Redding, and it features portraits painted by local artists of 30 community members who helped out and put their lives on the line during the Carr Fire.

One of the people featured is Redding police chief Roger Moore who lost his own home during the fire but never stopped working to make sure the public was safe during that turbulent time.

“For me, it's an honor and it's very humbling,” Moore said. “I wish there was a way to honor our entire department, all the men and women that put themselves in harm's way that night of the Carr Fire. I'm just so proud of them.”

Firefighter Jeremy stoke, who died in the fire, was also honored in the art show.

His portrait is hanging in what’s being called the Hall of Heroes to honor individuals who lost their lives in the fire.

The event kicked off at around 4 with a speech from the Mayor.

More than 200 were in attendance of the dedication and unveiling of the massive art project.

Organizers say the project is meant to honor community members who showed immense courage and incredible kindness during the Carr fire and weeks that followed.

The paintings will be hanging in city hall until May, so there’s still plenty of time to check out the show.

Once the exhibit is over, the subjects or their families will get to take the portraits home with them.
