See Something Say Something

SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING
Exhibit open through April 20

See Something, Say Something is an exhibition featuring David Huffman, Linda Vallejo, and Evri Kwong, three artists who address important issues of our time from diverse cultural perspectives, with intelligence and wit. The warning, “See Something, Say Something,” on posters and in announcements at bus depots, train stations and airports, encourages citizens to stay alert and speak up if they notice something amiss. While the phrase originated to convey the threat posed by terrorism after the 9/11 attacks, in this exhibition the meaning is expanded to encourage individuals to call out additional threats to society such racism, sexism, economic disparity, and climate change.

Pacific World

PACIFIC WORLD: THE HISTORY THAT BINDS US TO THE SEA
Exhibit open through June 2

The Pacific Ocean: From ancient voyagers who spread throughout a watery world, to the Spanish treasure ships known as Manila Galleons, to the nineteenth century traders who plied the coast from Sonoma County to Peru, it is a world unto itself. Explore the Great Ocean from a different perspective in Pacific World- a perspective where California is the eastern edge of the Pacific as often as it is the more familiar symbol of the American west. Featuring a collection of sixteenth century Chinese porcelain traded across the ocean, art and objects of Oceania, and artifacts related to the Sonoma Coast, the exhibition traces the influences of the Pacific World on the history of Sonoma County and the North Bay Area.

Santa Rosa

ONGOING SANTA ROSA EXHIBITION
Santa Rosa Room now open at the History Museum East Gallery

In 2018, the city of Santa Rosa celebrates the 150th anniversary of its incorporation, but the story of this place goes back much farther than that. From the settlement of Native people, to the devastation of the 1906 earthquake, to the indispensable advocacy of Santa Rosa’s leaders in the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, Santa Rosa has reached many milestones over its history. In this exhibition, we present a selective look at the people, places and events that form Santa Rosa, its past 150 years and more.

Teacup

THE SONOMA COUNTY FIRE PROJECT 

In response to the firestorms that ravaged much of the North Bay region in October 2017, the Museums of Sonoma County have two projects in development under the banner of The Fire Projects: The Fire Wall and The Fire Collection.

The Fire Collection: Preserving our Stories. How to submit: If you have an object, photograph, recording or other documentation that you believe is representative of the fires and would like the Museum to consider for the Fire Collection, please click here for the submission form and guidelines. 

The Fire Wall: Now LIVE. We would like to thank everyone who contributed their personal stories and images for the launch of the Sonoma County Fire Wall. We invite you to visit the Fire Wall and share your own creative response. The Fire Wall is an online searchable display and digital repository of the Sonoma County community's creative reflections and personal stories of the 2017 wildfires and their aftermath. The Fire Wall is designed to be inclusive, broad in scope, and empowering to all who participate and experience it.
