The best way to appreciate our outdoor public art gallery is on foot or bike on the Napa Valley Vine Trail or aboard one of the Napa Valley Wine Train’s many routes. Parking is available at the Napa Valley Wine Train Station located at:

The evolution of @hueman_ 's "The Garden" for #RADNapa! 📸 by @BirdmanPhotos
We’re partnering with property owners who love the RAD vision and want to transform their buildings, fences and grounds into canvases for art. 
If your commercial property lies within the Rail Arts District, it could be eligible to house Napa’s next major art installation. We’re actively seeking building owners who believe in our vision and would like to support #RADNAPA by lending their “canvas” to our outdoor gallery. Email us: INFO@RADNAPA.ORG 📸 by @birdmanPhotos
@hueman_ has finished her time in Napa and we're honored to have her part of #RADNapa. Her artist statement lends even more context to the beautiful addition at @ciaatcopia. 
Title: The Garden “The Garden” is directly inspired by the vegetable garden at the front of the CIA at Copia. The red lettuce in particular reminded me of flowers and are featured most prominently in the piece. The entire color palette is pulled from the greens in the garden, the red lettuce, the stones on the building, and the blue Napa sky." 📸 by @BirdmanPhotos, Curated by @thinkspace_art
Thank you to the Simms family and Mercedes Benz Fairfield  for providing courtesy cars for our artist and all mural installations moving forward! Together we can make a #RADNapa! Photo by @birdmanphotos
