#017 The Power of Art Community Art Installation
The Power of Art will be celebrated with our Hundreds of Hands™ #017, launching in early 2023. We’ll be activating community artists and highlighting the health and wellness benefits of artmaking through the ancient, meditative, and spiritual activity of stacking stones into “cairns.” Stone stacking’s focus on balance and stability parallels emotional health, and it is symbolic of our latest collaboration with our partner Mentis and its Teens Connect program. Teens from across Napa Valley will work with community members of all ages and backgrounds to create personal mosaics that will be assembled onto large-scale stone forms.
The completed mosaic-adorned cairn will be stacked twelve-feet high! The massive mosaic stone stacks will be surrounded by natural stones and will serve to educate and inspire others to create their own cairns, and to reflect and seek steadiness.
