Nimbus Arts, a community-based nonprofit, ignites artistic expression across the Napa Valley.

Save the date NIMBASH 2018 - Saturday, May 12, 2018


On Saturday, May 13, our eighth annual interactive arty party and auction- NIMBASH 2017- dazzled more than 350 art lovers from the Napa Valley and beyond with a spectacular evening of art, wine, food, music, fashion -- and so much more.

NIMBASH 2017 raised more than $400,000! Nearly $90k of the money raised went to our amazing local and supporting artists through wages, commissions, and event installations. NIMBASH is the main fundraiser for Nimbus Arts, our community-serving nonprofit dedicated to igniting artistic expression across the Napa Valley and it funds programs to make art accessible to everyone in our community.
