Founded in 2016, the Rail Arts District Napa (RAD Napa) is envisioned as a free outdoor contemporary art museum.  RAD Napa begins in Napa’s Oxbow District and continues northward for two miles along the Napa Valley Vine Trail bike and pedestrian path and the Napa Valley Wine Train tracks.  Murals, sculptures, landscaping, and parks are just some of the examples of how these semi-industrial areas and neighborhoods are being enlivened and transformed by the district.  RAD Napa believes in the cultural, educational, and economic value of public art.  RAD Napa is a 501c3 nonprofit organization conceptualized by the Napa Valley Wine Train and the Napa Valley Vine Trail and is enthusiastically supported by the City of Napa, and members of the local arts and business communities.

This isn’t just a community beautification plan. This is RAD Napa.

A RADICAL VISION OF TRANSFORMATION

We believe that public art is generative. When art moves into the neighborhood, creative momentum courses through the community and it transforms for the better.

— SCOTT GOLDIE, Napa Valley Wine Train; Co-Founder RAD Napa
