[ARCHIVED] Roundabout Public Art Project

The City of Napa is conducting a review process to choose an artwork for the Roundabout at 1st Street & California Street.  The gateway artwork will be in the southeast corner of the roundabout (not in the center).  The project funding is provided by the Public Art Fund.  
 The City of Napa has developed a growing art collection over the past 50 years reflecting the community’s evolving culture and identity. This gateway statement piece is commissioned to amplify the City of Napa on the international art map as well as create a great sense of local community pride. The artist and their artwork should reflect our values of diversity and inclusion along with set a high bar for future permanent works. Just as the City of Napa has a rich history and enduring story, our hope is this work will not only reflect our past but have a part in elevating and transforming Napa as we embark on a bold new chapter of the community’s public art program.
 The City aims to accomplish five goals with this project including:
 1) Enhancing downtown Napa's image as a world-class art destination
 2) Be iconic and a true gateway piece
 3) Be site-specific and original
 4) Be inviting and aesthetically appealing
 5) Be viewable as a drive-by experience
The three artists featured in the survey were chosen as finalists by Art Selection Panel to create site-specific proposal. Please review each proposal and provide your input by June 24th.
