The installation, titled From the Woods to the Water - Sonoma County bird impressions by artist Thomas Hill, comprises five steel wire formations that will be on display throughout Harmon now through June 2023. The exhibit is a collaboration with Gallery Lulo on Center Street in Healdsburg, where Hill is a featured artist.
