Art and environmental activism combine when Ryan Pierce picks up his paintbrushes and sculpture tools. 

Pierce is the co-founder of Signal Fire, a collection of artists dedicated to the natural world who lead other artists into nature. 

The theme for the 2016 activities of Signal Fire is "Unwalking the West," a symbolic undoing of the impacts of westward expansion.  Ryan Pierce stops in from Portland to talk about the work.
