In partnership with Friends of the Napa River, Robert Zlomke has received a grant from Arts Council Napa Valley to create a piece of riverside art. The project will use large woody debris from the river to create a sculpture at the river’s edge celebrating the river and our connection to it.
“We think the time is right to call everyone’s attention to our relationship with the river that makes downtown Napa possible,” said furniture maker and wood artist Robert Zlomke. “This piece will be about our sense of place in a complex river environment.”
With the support of staff of the Napa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, we are now busy locating material. Friends of the River and the artist will fine-tune the design this spring and explore locations with the City of Napa. We hope to install the project by the end of the year.
