Collection Commissioned by Napa Valley Heritage Fund & on Loan from Rianda House

In 1998–99, the Napa Valley Heritage Fund (now disbanded) commissioned nine artists to commemorate in watercolor the few remaining stone arch bridges in Napa County, all listed on the National Register of Historic Places. NVHF also asked photographer Ron Reed to make large black-and-white photographs of these same nine bridges. The collection was displayed at Rianda House Senior Activity Center from 2008 to 2014, and the entire collection was gifted to the center in 2014. These beautiful works of art serve as a reminder of local artistic talent and of historical bridges as they were 16 years––and a century––ago.

After the reception, Jay Greene will give a talk and slideshow about the bridges and the artists. Greene was president of NVHF when the project was commissioned. The purpose of the fund was to preserve the cultural history of the valley. For a map and short descriptions of the bridges/artists, go to the library’s website at www.shpl.org. This program is supported by Friends & Foundation, St. Helena Public Library.
