The Rail Arts District is pleased to invite the public to its second annual Open House that will be held April Thursday 26, at the Napa Valley Wine Train Station lobby (1275 McKinstry St.). The Open House from 6 pm to 7:30 pm is free and open to public, refreshments will be served.
This event offers the perfect opportunity to share with attendees all the great art installations that we have done during the month of Arts in April 2018. We are ecstatic to have had the opportunity to work with local, regional, and national artists on the installation of three murals and 12 signal box artwork wraps in the district during this month.
This event will also provide an excellent chance for anyone considering participating to find out what plans we have on the short and long-term.
About RAD Napa:
Established in 2016, the Rail Arts District Napa (RAD) is a non-profit organization that is enriching our community through investment in and stewardship of a new, internationally recognized art district in Napa. Encompassing a two-mile stretch of semi-industrial land that starts at this station and runs along the train tracks and adjacent bike and foot path, RAD’s purpose is to see this previously far-from-scenic route pulse with new energy, awe-inspiring sights, thriving businesses and meaningful dialogue through the transforming power of public art.
Led by the Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition, the Napa Valley Wine Train, and members of the local arts and business communities, RAD invites a collective of local, regional, national and international artists to leave their mark on Napa’s walls, warehouses, alleys and intersections. Through the commitment of passionate private and public sponsors, RAD installed six murals and 12 signal box artwork wraps in the district in its first two years, with more than 100 murals, sculptures, new media installations, gateway areas and landscape features included in the masterplan.
