A Community Inspired and Sponsored Project

Welcome to The Napa Gateway Project

Welcome to The Napa Gateway Project

about the project

In collaboration with Kiwanis Club, Leadership Napa Valley Class #32 undertook the project of replacing existing gateway signs with more iconic gateway signage for the Legendary Napa Valley and City of Napa.  

THE EXISTING SIGN ALONG HWY 221

image1

The sign along Highway 221, is located across from Napa Valley College and on the state hospital property.  The sign is partially covered by overgrown bushes that impair the visibility of the sign from the highway.

The area south of the sign already has an existing culvert to allow automobile access.

The highway is littered with trash and could benefit through volunteer community clean-up efforts. 

THE EXISTING SIGN ALONG HWY 29

This sign is located on private property, next to "The Meadows," and is adjacent to a public walking trail.

The landscaping around this sign is kept up nicely. However, the sign is not very visible from Hwy 121.

The existing community organization identifiers have fallen into disrepair and need replacing.

About the Artist

Gordon Huether, World Renown Napa-based Artist

Gordon Huether was born in Rochester, NY in 1959, to German immigrant parents. Having dual citizenship in Germany and the U.S., Huether has spent much time traveling between both countries. Huether learned art composition and appreciation at an early age from his father. In the course of his initial artistic explorations, Huether was resolved to create a lasting impact on the world around him through the creation of large-scale works of art. He took a deliberate step towards this goal in 1987 when Huether founded his studio in Napa, California.  He has received more than 70 public art commissions and more than 175 private commissions.

Gordon Huether is donating his design services for this project.
