This multi-disciplinary contemporary art exhibit explores and celebrates the biology, beauty and bounty of the Pacific Flyway–the major north-south path for migratory birds from the Alaskan Arctic to South America. Focused particularly on the Flyway within California, the art installation by Sacramento-area artists Valerie Constantino, Glenda Drew and Ann Savageau is supplemented at the Grace Hudson Museum with bird specimens from the Lake Sonoma Visitors Center and the Hopland Research and Extension Center, and with bird-related pieces by the Museum's namesake artist, Grace Hudson.
