Call to the Community: Celebrate the Napa River!

The Napa Valley Museum Yountville invites you to participate in a community-curated exhibition focusing on our shared connection to the Napa River.

We invite the community to share a photo, historic or contemporary, along with a short descriptive paragraph. In your description, please tell us the approximate location of the photo, your connection to, or reasons for choosing, that spot, and what makes this part of the river important or special to you. These photos will be considered for inclusion in: Meander Through Time – the Living Napa River, on exhibition in our History Gallery beginning on April 2, 2022. Submissions are due no later than March 1, 2022.

We would love to hear from birders, people who fish, stand-up paddleboarders, boaters, hikers, and people who commune or meditate on or near the river. But we are interested in submissions from everyone whose life is impacted by their connection to the Napa River.

Please note: by submitting your photo(s) and writings, you are granting the Napa Valley Museum Yountville permission to use your submission and name for display and marketing purposes. Please e-mail your submissions to: .

This exhibition will also include maps, photographs, artwork and other items from the Museum’s permanent collection, as well as provided by the Friends of the Napa River, Fish Friendly Farming, and Napa RCD.
