How We Impact the Community

The Rail Arts District (RAD) is a 2 mile long linear art district in the Napa Valley that runs along the Vine Trail and Wine Train route from the Oxbow District to Redwood Road.

With a mission to bring contemporary art to everyone for free, RAD has produced dozens of artworks since it was founded. Our RAD Wall is an education program which gives youth the opportunity to connect and paint murals each summer.

We provide coloring book placemats featuring artworks in the district, artist talks, and walking tours of public art. In collaboration with the Valley Writers Group this summer, we transferred three poems by local poets to massive walls in the district. More than a dozen giant clay sculptures will be installed in the district this year.

RAD Napa believes in the cultural, educational, and economic value of public art.

Our RAD Wall is an amazing place for youth to learn about and practice making murals, but it’s also a place for youth to build community, collaborate and connect in a safe and inclusive place.
