#006 The Peace Park Collaboration
Peace takes many forms and is expressed in numerous ways. Nimbus Arts is pleased to be joining an ambitious creative collaboration with the Napa Valley Vine Trail organization, Napa Valley Rotary Club, and acclaimed Napa-based artist, Gordon Huether, to create the “Peace Park.” Funded in part by the Rotary Club, the proposed park is on Napa County-owned land adjacent to the Napa Valley Vine Trail in south Yountville. The site is currently improved with one of the Vine Trail’s iconic sheltered rest stops and has beautiful vineyard and mountain views. The partnership is developing plans to add sculptural elements and landscaped green space to express the creative spirit and shared desire for peace in our community.
Gordon Huether is also adding his experience and expertise to our innovative fine and industrial art education program, produced with the Napa County Office of Education and serving at-risk teens in the Juvenile Court and Community School program. Gordon will guide the design and creation of the focal sculpture; later, a complementary mosaic sculpture from our Hundreds of Hands™ Portico Project will be added. The Peace Park will serve as a place to rest, reflect, share, and celebrate our community. We are very pleased and moved to be included in a project which has the mission to express the important universal message of peace.
