Travel north on highway 101over the Golden Gate Bridge; the landscape soon becomes rolling hills dotted with old oak trees and vineyards. Wineries are not the only thing to visit in Sonoma County.

WILD RIDE

From Highway 101 take Highway 116, in Cotati, west to the town of Sebastopol.  Sebastopol was first famous for its apples now the notoriety focuses on the art.

Just blocks off the main corridor that leads to Northern California’s scenic coast you will find the sculpture art of Patrick Amiot. The lawns on Florence Avenue are decorated with the individual, more than life size, creations of Patrick’s metal junk art.  For more on Patrick go to www.patrickamiot.com. On the road into Sebastopol watch for Patrick’s  life size cow on the side of the road, it is hard to tell if it’s a real cow or a model.

His studio bursting Amiot needed a place to display his works. His neighbors were such fans of his art they were happy to volunteer their own front lawns for a show place. People live in the houses behind the lawn so viewing is only from the street. Photos are welcome, just don’t knock on anyone’s door.

  1. Thank you for another informative blog. Where else could I get that kind of information written in such an ideal way? I’ve a project that I’m just now working on, and I’ve been on the look out for such info.

  2. I do trust all of the ideas you’ve introduced in your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for starters. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

    1. I will try and give more information when there is some to offer and when time permits. Often it is something that has to be posted quickly and brief is necessary. I agree though that I should expand on the Street Art in Sebastaol, Patrick is fantastic.
