collaboration

  Sonoma County sculptor Bruce Johnson is known for his massive redwood and metal structures. But he has also been central to some unexpected collaborations with artists from quite different fields. 

Sculptor Bruce Johnson’s name for his Poetry House provided a parallel for Elizabeth Herron’s long poem, The Poet’s House.  But she says the finished space was also rich in inspiration.

Choreographer Nancy Lyons says she and her colleagues in the SoCo Dance Theater also drew inspiration from Johnson’s work—in a very tactile way.

eTown hosts Nick and Helen Forster welcome Texas singer/songwriter Hayes Carll to eTown Hall’s solar-powered stage for lots of great music, collaborations with eTown’s house band, and conversation about the craft of songwriting, and influences that have inspired him along the way.

For years now, Sonoma County agencies and NGOs have been working together to understand and prepare for the impacts of climate change. Now that work has been honored and promoted at the national level.
