Summer Arts Stroll

July 25, 2020 – August 31, 2020Summer Arts Stroll
A Free, Valley-Wide Public Art Exhibit

The Sonoma Valley Arts Task Force & HeART of Sonoma is pleased to bring you the Summer Arts Stroll, sponsored by the city of Sonoma and Sonoma Plein Air Foundation. The Summer Arts Stroll is a self-guided, outdoor art-viewing experience - complete with a virtual map and decals identifying exhibit locations for patrons to view from a safe distance when it's convenient for them. Artwork will be visible to the public through windows or in outdoor areas.  

There are no reservations required and it is free to participate – so, what are you waiting for? Support local artists and businesses, and stroll!

Plan Your Stroll

Don't Forget Your Face Covering!

While all artwork will be viewable from the car, curb or sidewalk, please maintain a 6’ physical distance from those outside your household and wear a facial covering when 6’ of physical distance cannot be maintained – even outside – to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

How to Participate

Heart of Sonoma Signs on PlazaWhat is the Sonoma Arts Stroll? The Summer Arts Stroll is an exhibition without walls where businesses showcase art in storefronts, windows, or outdoors throughout Sonoma Valley.  Similar to our beloved Art Walk, but to ensure safety, all artwork is viewable outside and there is no designated event. 

How do you join? Free for businesses, artists, and patrons! 

If you’re an artist, please complete this form by July 16 (soft deadline). You will then be sent additional details regarding your participation. 

If you’re a business or have property that is appropriate to show art, email gail.duffley@zoho.com

If you’d like your own heart to paint or would like to commission an artist to paint a sign heart for you, email: nicole@vinecountrysigns.com
