This is a weekly feature to keep you informed about the real estate happenings in Yountville. Besides just real estate info, I hope to give the readers of my blog some insight into the heart of Yountville using a variety of media including photos, tidbits, gossip and other fun things. If this is of interest to you, I would love hearing from you. If there are other cities here in the Napa Valley, such as St. Helena or Calistoga, you would like this feature expanded to, let me know.

My FACTS ETC this week is copied from the Studio 707 blog who did a wonderful job covering the YOUNTVILLE PHOTO BOOTH PROJECT by Phil Sherburne. Truly a unique and Yountville type of happening. If you get a chance to drop by, it is still up.
Yountville “Facebook” Installed This Week
Pacific Northwest urban planner- turned- sustainable developer, Phil Sherburne, collaborated with San Francisco photographer Christopher Irion this month to rally people who live or work in the small Napa Valley town of Yountville for a community portrait. Monday night the two men hosted a block party to celebrate the installation of the portrait, a composite of hundreds of large-format individual and group images that stretches along a sidewalk in the town center.

Both Sherburne and Irion said they consider the wall to be a celebration of community here and everywhere. “It’s not about the art,” said Irion. “It’s about all of you. Thank-you for taking the risk to participate.”
Phil Sherburne introduces townspeople to Arborica’s Evan Shively who not only sourced and milled reclaimed lumber for the Bardessono inn and spa, but arrived with his wife, Madeline and Chef Annie Gingrass and his portable, wood-fired oven to create artisan pizzas for the block party.Irion has now traveled across the United States carrying his portable, handmade PhotoBooth in a Volkswagen Eurovan documenting communities from coast to coast. Sherburne, who underwrote the project, founded an even smaller community than Yountville on Decatur Island in the San Juans 25 years ago. Next winter, he will open a new inn in the Town of Yountville he hopes will achieve Platinum LEED Certification.
Yountville’s block party drew several hundred locals who enjoyed pizzas created by Madeleine and Evan Shively and Ann Gingrass in Evan’s portable wood-fired pizza oven. Shively is the owner of Aborica
The Community Portrait wall will be up until Yountville’s November Festival of Lights installation.
