The Project

The Gualala Arts picnic area, developed and lovingly tended by volunteers is up for “new and improved” status. Home to the BBQ, pizza oven, stage and picnic tables, this area is key for food service at major events like Art in the Redwoods and the Car Show. It is also the site for private events, celebrations and weddings, providing a beautiful venue for guests and an important source of income to help Bridge the Arts Center’s funding Gap.

Redwood Grove Event Area

After discussions and planning meetings with the Stone Foundation International, landscape designers, Gualala Arts staff, volunteers and local caterers, a design has been prepared for improvements and beautification. It will solve existing issues like tripping hazards, drainage, increased access and access for all, level ground and site lines to the stage. The plan creates a magnificent, serpentine stone retaining wall that will be memorable as a work of art in its own right, and new stone paths to be built after grading, leveling, and clearing of old stumps. The existing redwood trees will remain.

Join us in this exciting adventure. Help us “Bridge the Gap . . . and Beyond.” We need additional funding and offer many opportunities to support the project that include naming rights and recognition­.
