Signed Mutual Aid Poster

Price: $75.00

24x36" Signed Poster by Jerry Dodrill Commemorating Response to the 2017 Napa / Sonoma Fires - Shipped Rolled in a Tube

see full description & specifications

In October 2017 California’s Sonoma/Napa region was rocked by devastating wildfires that consumed 9000 structures, leaving thousands homeless. When flames burned our friend’s homes and neighborhoods down to their foundations, I felt called to do something creative. 
 As a former firefighter, I was stunned by the overwhelming response from departments who came from far away to provide mutual aid. Over the course of several mornings I hung out on a curb near the fairgrounds in Santa Rosa working on a series project, photographing the door panels of as many different fire trucks as I could while the congregation of men and women came and went from their daily fire line assignments. Ultimately I amassing a collection of images that represents nearly half of the more than 500 different fire agencies that came from across the Western United States. 
 The result is a composite piece called “Mutual Aid”. Each of the tiles represents a small thank you to the communities who sent their bravest men and women in our time of need. Many of the gold door logos show a glimpse into the unique local culture, industry and agriculture of the truck’s place of origin. By sending mutual aid, we exhibit a level of support for humankind that transcends the divisions in today’s society. I see an underlying optimism here in that during a disaster we put aside our ideologies and show up to help one another. - Jerry Dodrill
