Fractal Art Refugee Benefit Sale at the Petaluma Art & Garden Festival

More than 15,000 women, men and children have died crossing the Mediterranean Sea in the last several years, most fleeing violence and looking for a safe home. Sonoma County artist and activist Eric Leland gave 100% of the profits from the sale of his fractal burn art to Refugee Impact’s work to help these people looking for a better life. Made from discarded wood objects, each piece is a one of a kind, and represents hope for precious lives too often overlooked. Eric uses 12,000 volts electricity to burn wandering trails through the wood surface, representing the tremendous energy and lengthy paths followed by people fleeing persecution.
