Birds in Art
This renowned exhibition, organized by the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, was scheduled to open in Rockport a few weeks after the Hurricane. Thankfully, the birds landed nearby, at the Art Museum of South Texas, beginning a partnership and collaboration between the Museum and Rockport Center for the Arts.
