Heart Yountville

Commissioners will hide-in-plain-sight 37 glass hearts
among the Yountville Art Walk sculpture. 

Saturday, February 3 & Sunday, February 4
Saturday, February 10 & Sunday, February 11

Saturday, February 24 & Sunday, February 25

In 2023 Yountville Arts created some fun by bringing glass hearts to be scattered and ‘found’ around our Art Walk Sculptures each weekend.

It became so popular (and a little competitive!) that we wanted to bring the event back again to our Yountville and Napa Valley communities in 2024. This year we will scatter 37 glass hearts each Saturday and 37 more each Sunday in February.

Beginning Feb 3rd and 4th and subsequent weekends in February, Yountville Arts will scatter beautiful signed and numbered glass hearts along our famous Art Walk sculptures for all to find. Glass hearts will be playfully ‘hidden-in-plain-sight’ by the Yountville Arts Commissioners.  Hiding is likely to be done in the dark of night or break of dawn and glass heart seekers won’t know until they get out Saturday and Sunday mornings and start looking along the length of the Art Walk and its 38 sculptures. Art Walk maps are available at the Yountville Welcome Center, 6484 Washington Street, Yountville and online at yvillearts.com.

Find Your Heart  boot heart

Napa Valley glass artist Patti Wessman individually created our beautiful glass hearts, and the 300 glass hearts will be scattered throughout town. The glass heart you find is yours to keep as a keepsake from Yountville, The Heart of the Napa Valley

“We are so excited for ‘Find Your Heart in Yountville’ to return again this year”, comments Noel Resnick, Chair Yountville Arts Marketing Committee. “The search for these beautiful handmade glass hearts was such a huge success last year, and it remains a lively way to actively engage our community and visitors in one of Yountville Arts imaginative offerings”.

On Saturday, February 17 a larger, yellow glass heart will be hidden to celebrate Yountville’s participation in the 2024 Napa Valley Mustard Celebration. A prize will be awarded to the finder of this special heart. Please contact us to arrange pick up of the prize.
