The Fish Line


Explore the past, invisible present, and future of the Napa River. Starting at River Park, we’ll walk and chalk the 1876 river bank’s location, swim with Spencer the endangered, seven foot long sturgeon, and see the future of the water through the eyes (and feet!) of shorebirds. Finally, get to know your watershed neighborhood as it tumbles down the fountain pools, flowing with life just for the day.

The Walk

Family Friendly, easy one-mile, interactive walk from River Park to the plaza between Vallejo City Hall and the JKF Library; Saturday September 9, 2017; 2:00 to 3:30 pm.

ON FIRE | Temple Arts Gallery, corner of Virginia & Marin.
Sept 8th – Oct 14th, 2017

Fire is a critical agent of change on the California landscape.  Wildfires are both destructive and restorative.

We find beauty in their terrible power.  Our forests, chaparral and grasslands will inevitably burn. They need fire to thrive. The question is: Can we learn to live with wildfire?

ON FIRE explores the relationship between between people and wildfire.

The exhibition also examines the current tree mortality situation in the Sierra Nevada.  More than 100 million trees have died because of drought and bark beetles.

Re-Shaping Vallejo | Vallejo Naval & Historical Museum, 734 Marin Street

A series of interpretive panels explores the changing landscape of Vallejo and Mare Island. People have continuously shaped and restored the land and waterways, even as wild nature persists. Even lifelong residents will be surprised to learn about Vallejo’s hidden history.

Imaginary Landscapes | Artiszen Cultural Arts Center, 337 Georgia Street

Memory and imagination are universal ways that we experience changing landscapes. “Imaginary Landscapes” explores the ambiguous relationship between observation, fantasy and art.   The “scenes” in these works reinvent the past, re-create the present or reveal a vision of the future.  Even the most abstract images remind us of the natural world in some uncanny way.  Is this work of the artist or viewer?  We hope this show will lead you  to reflect on the landscapes in your own mind.
