How does art, architecture and design both affect and reflect a community?

Drawing inspiration from the forward-thinking town founder, Harmon Heald, Harmon Guest House has a mission to bring together guests in innovative ways. Our Elevated Talks series furthers this mission by providing a forum for locals and visitors alike to learn about and discuss different facets of art, architecture and design.
