Bird Power

Posted on September 08, 2021
My thoughts these days focus on positives, despite the pandemic’s continued unknowns. At the top of my list is the power of birds. Just hours away from the start of previews of the 2021 Birds in Art exhibition, I can’t help but marvel at not only the Woodson Art Museum’s fortitude, but also the exhibition’s endurance . . . forty-six years strong.
