With spring just around the corner, it is a wonderful time of the year that we can get out and enjoy the sights and smells, beautiful flowers, trees, and nature itself!
But, it’s also a good time to appreciate beauty, and what better place to do that than at the Napa Riverfront’s own “ARTwalk.”
Napa’s ARTwalk creates an exciting and appealing environment for the public by integrating outdoor art with public areas. The ARTwalk does a great job at preserving and enriching Napa’s cultural environment, and also promotes participation from the public and interaction with artwork and their artists. They keep artwork on view for twenty-four months, and during that time the members of the community and tourists alike are encouraged to nominate one of the pieces of art for a “People’s Choice Award.” The annual winner of this award also receives a prize of a two-night long getaway in Napa.
To make your visit easier for you to understand, there are downloadable brochures available for you to use that you can get here. The brochures include a guide of the art locations, information about the people who created the artwork, as well as links to the ARTwalk’s audio tour, which enables a self-guided viewing of the art display from the sunrise until the sunset! Thanks to technology, you can use the audio tour by simply scanning a QR code off of the brochure using your iPhone or any other device that supports a QR code-scanning app! The ARTwalk is a great art destination in Napa, and it helps to stimulate the Downtown economy through increasing its pedestrian activity.
