BottleRock just took place this past week-end in Napa. We visited the festival grounds as final preparations were taking place to specifically see the art and were pleasantly surprised to find the artful presentations of the wine tents that dotted the grounds. This festival is truly a sensory event appealing to the five senses. The promenades were lined with food booths showcasing food prepared by Napa restaurants. There were several musical and culinary stages.
The art at the festival was arranged by Zener Schon Gallery, located in Mill Valley. While their name may not be familiar, they have been a driving force in arranging for art and artists at popular venues across the country like Outside Lands in San Francisco and Red Bull Canvas Cooler. They arranged for seven artists to enhance the visual experience at Bottlerock this year. Since we visited the site a few days before opening we found art by five of the artists.

Wine tents surrounded the sound stages with living spaces and wine to appeal to the wide range of attendants.
There were many food booths and a few food trucks. We liked one food truck in particular covered with art by Jules Muck of LA.
Show at Zener Schon Gallery
