Experience the exotic world of Tiki Art in this fun and engaging new exhibit. It will include decorative objects from the Tiki movement, including indigenous artifacts as well as Polynesian Pop memorabilia from themed restaurants and bars. With the Musuem located on the grounds of the California Veterans Home in Yountville, the exhibit will tie into history of the movement that dates back to the height of its post WWII roots. It will also highlight leading contemporary California Tiki artists and locations from both Northern and Southern California. Speaking events and tastings will accompany the exhibit, and some of the artwork on display will be for sale at the conclusion of the exhibit. A focal point in the main gallery will be a large Tiki bar, used to display various objects and host related events, including curated rum and cocktail tastings.

A companion exhibition in our virtual gallery will invite the community to share their favorite tiki art and décor. The opening mumus and mai tais celebration promises to be a lively way to kick off the exhibit!
