Taking Flight is a pop-up art installation and working studio by local artists Deborah Jones and Lara Whitley, who work in collage, sculpture, and painting. Partnering with Willits Town Center, the artists moved into an empty storefront from April 14-May 20, 2012, with the promise to temporarily revitalize the space with art. Over its five-week run, Taking Flight continually evolved and expanded, changing each day with the addition of new work created both on-site and for the site.
