ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Buster Simpson used tractor disc harrows that once worked the local soil to create bell tower chimes next to Walla Walla's Titus Creek. The work evokes regional farming and the passage of time, environmental conditions of the Walla Walla watershed, and the seasonal return of salmon.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Department of Corrections and Walla Walla Community College.
