"The 35-foot 'Bunny
Foo Foo,' a polished
stainless steel piece
by Lawrence Argent
at HALL Wines, is a
sight to see at holiday
time. It changes into
the Bunny Witch, the
Bunny Reindeer, and
the Easter Bunny."

The up-and-coming Rail Arts District (RAD), a
swath of murals and wraps, runs along a two-mile
section of the Vine Trail in downtown Napa. The
district aims to transform a semi-industrial portion
of the city into a contemporary cultural corridor,
where building walls and out-of-use signal boxes
become giant canvases.
All told, there are more than 20 vibrant pieces
of art in this district. One of the most recognizable
of these murals is "Knocking on Heaven's Door
2017," by Bezt and Natalia Rak. The piece depicts
a woman in an old, run-down setting reaching out
to glowing butterflies. Another highlight: "Jack
and Jill 2018," which shows a school-aged boy in
love with a girl and reading to her.
Two other stellar public art spots: the Napa Art
Walk, a biannual rotating exhibit of ten juried
sculptures by artists all over the West; and the

Yountville Art Walk, a string of 29 exhibits that
runs from one end of town to another.
There are other iconic places to experience
public art in the Valley. One of Dodd's favorites:
"Fish On," a giant silver fish sculpture in front of
the Napa River Inn. Originally, this sculpture was
installed temporarily on the corner of Third and
Main streets in downtown Napa. When the sculpture was removed, the community rallied together
for it be returned. In the end, the Inn purchased it
and brought it back.
Also worth seeking out: A bronze piece named
"Cha Cha Cha" that essentially lives on the sidewalk on the inland side of the Riverfront complex. Dodd says she's partial to this piece because
it's fun to watch people spontaneously decide to
follow the steps and dance in the middle of the
sidewalk.
