Ars Longa Vita Brevis

Alan Shepp’s mosaic fountain reflects the Napa Valley’s role in the epic of the American West. Titled Ars Longa Vita Brevis, this work of art at Napa River Inn seeks to capture the essence of the whole Napa Valley story, its glories its tragedies. Beneath the waterfall, the mosaics reflect the flora and fauna living in the Napa River. They also show bountiful harvests such as grapes, wheat, prunes, and more, as well as the native animals inhabiting its banks. This multimedia artist takes pride in creating large-scale sculpture and public art.
