Nestled in the heart of the Napa Valley, Yountville’s perfectly walkable one-mile main street features world-renowned restaurants, over a dozen wine tasting rooms and exclusive high-end hotels, as well as shopping, galleries and best of all, a beautiful collection of public art.
The Yountville Art Walk program is designed to promote the Town’s pedestrian-friendly atmosphere with a collection of outdoor public art that includes approximately 35 sculptures.
The Art Walk is always open to sculpture entries. We offer a $2,500 stipend to assist with costs and ask for a two-year loan agreement for each piece. Our rotation of sculptures provides our guests and visitors with an ever-changing Art Walk experience throughout the tourist section of our town.
Yountville Arts Commission’s Mission Statement reads;
“To provide vision, leadership, inspiration and support for artists and their art in Yountville, creating a bridge that links artists, community, visitors, business and government.”
Our Mission Statement formalizes our goal of supporting the artist. Each piece on loan to the town for the Art Walk is for sale and promoted through our Art Walk map, social media, a new QR code accessible Audio Tour, and press releases for new works.
Since its inception in 2009, 38 of the sculptures placed on the Art Walk have sold.
