CHICO, Calif. - Monca, the museum of Northern California Art on the Esplanade featured a variety of artwork on Sunday that has special meaning to the people of the North State.

The museum just opened two new exhibits featuring artists who were affected by both the Camp and Carr Fires. 

Many of the pieces were pulled from the ashes of homes and businesses. Monca is housed in the Veterans Memorial Hall of Chico.

The museum often hosts events in honor of our veterans. All veterans with identification cards were able to get in for free.

"We are so thankful for all that they have done for us and with this being a veterans building they gave us the use of this building and we get to give them free admission," Pat Macias Board President, Museum of Northern California said.

These two new Carr and Camp Fire exhibits opened this past Friday, and they close Dec. 29. They were meant to be a way for people affected by the fires to use the process of making the artwork to help heal.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
