Through the multimedia resources and informative exhibits that earned executive director Nicole Myers-Lim a 2010 Native American 40 Under 40 award, the California Indian Museum educates visitors on the diverse history and culture. Museum members can bring a guest or their children free of charge to explore various topics of California Indian history, such as the Gold Rush, native languages, military history, and anthropology. The museum's principal exhibit, Ishi: A Story of Dignity, Hope and Courage, uses cultural artifacts to tell the story of the Indian who was studied for five years by the anthropologists at the University of California. Members of the museum will also receive the educational bi-annual newsletter and timely notifications about The Tillie Hardwick Lecture Series, which features a collection of hands-on basket making, dancing and music making, and storytelling while highlighting the history of the landmark Tillie Hardwick v.

Almost everyone dreams of flying. In those dreams, landscapes unravel below like patchwork quilts, and high, soft breezes brush past your face while mountains and hills jut out of the earth to form peaks and valleys. They're gentle dreams, and ones that Calistoga Balloon Co can make real with high-soaring balloon rides.

During sunrise launches, their rainbow-hued balloons flit above the north end of Napa Valley, gliding passengers along scenic grapevine corridors and mountain vistas unique to the region. The area is also home to landmarks the likes of Mount Saint Helena, the Palisades Cliffs, and the Napa Valley Castle?all sights to be savored from the basket of a hot air balloon. To celebrate collecting such lifelong memories, passengers can enjoy a champagne breakfast after touchdown followed by activities such as leisurely picnics or bike tours through the wine country.

The Charles M. Schulz Museum pays loving homage to the life and career of the legendary creator of the Peanuts comics. For 50 years, Schulz illustrated the adventures of Charlie Brown and his friends Snoopy, Linus, Pigpen, and Lucy in hundreds of U.S. newspapers. The museum maintains six permanent exhibitions, including a re-creation of Schultz’s studio, a morphing Snoopy timeline, the Peanuts–themed wall of his daughter’s nursery, and a flying Red Baron who constantly pelts customers with pepperoni slices. Rotating exhibitions last for about six months, featuring such curiosities as a 13-foot-tall Charlie Brown sweater and an examination of Schulz’s evolving pen line. Museum memberships give patrons a discount on all museum stores, complimentary admission, and invitations to members-only events.

A work of art relies on many components to maintain its integrity. Aside from the canvas and the struggle the artist went through to get Billy to stop hogging all the blue paint, the piece will require a frame to be respected as a finished product. At Ringseis Designs, the framing crew works with custom mouldings and archival techniques to protect and enhance artwork, analyzing each piece before selecting matting and frame combinations that draw attention to intended focal points. They also protect 3-D objects, protecting keepsakes in shadowboxes and preserving sports jerseys in textile cases.
