Arts Council Napa Valley enriches the lives of greater Napa community through arts and culture. napaARTwalk supports the creation of original, high-quality and collaborative sculpture from regional artists. Fifteen sculptures will be exhibited on the 2013-15 tour, titled Metamorphosis, launching June 13, 2013.
Printed and downloadable brochures, including a map of artwork locations, enable self-guided viewing of the exhibition. The program also offers a downloadable audio tour using QR codes that are on the plaques at each piece as well as in the brochures. Audio tours works great for outdoor exhibits since mobile phones are very hard to see outdoors.
ARTwalk brochures for the Metamorphosis exhibition will be available in June 2013, visit the Napa Valley Welcome Center at 600 Main Street in Downtown Napa.
For more information about the program, or for information on purchasing a piece on exhibition, please contact Christy Bors, Programs & Services Manager, at (707) 257-2117, ext. 1.

The built-in Google Search widget can decode QR codes! Android Phones have a built in QR Code Reader. Google Goggles reads QR Codes and is also integrated with the Google App for iOS devices.
To scan a QR code, you need to tap the microphone icon inside the Google Widget and then choose “Search with Camera” option from the menu available in the lower right corner.
Now point your mobile camera to any QR Code, tap the on-screen camera icon and it will instantly reveal what’s stored in that QR Code. You’ll also find Google search results for the decoded QR Code.
I have tried this on Nexus, Samsung and Motorola phones running Android 4.2.2 (JellyBean).
Tested on the iPhone5 too!, Select Google Voice search, tap the camera icon and take a photo of the QR Code!
Here is unique idea from France; a Teller Party is a friendly and relaxed evening where everyone comes in a T-shirt and where each T-shirt has a Teller Code ®.
The Teller Party can be directed but more often it stands alone in the sense that people take pleasure in discovering what each is “hiding” behind the code – just for that evening.
To help you succeed in your evening (or morning for that matter), they offer our “Teller Party Kits”.
Your kit contains a discount code (to appear on posters and flyers) that will allow anyone to use it to get a € 5 discount on all purchases made on their site, and you the promoter gets a voucher for € 5 each time it happens.
The “Party Kit Teller” is 17.50 € (packaging and delivery costs included for metropolitan France) , specifically designed for individuals and / or small associations, sports clubs and communities. It includes:
- 5 posters TP - A2 (59x42cm) on glossy coated 135gr.

Newcastle is placing QR codes on tap handles in bars where their products are available. Copy around the QR codes encourages consumers to scan the QR code to find the nearest Newcastle beer.
When consumers scan the code, they are directed to a landing page with an arrow that points towards the tap handle and reads, “There it is.”
The content is simple, but effective in driving home the message that consumers do not need to go on a hunt to find hand-crafted beer – it is already available where they are.
The Qr Codes are from http://smartyt.ag/

A California sushi restaurant; Harney Sushi’s will print edible, water-based ink quick response (QR) codes on rice paper wafers and serve these codes on its sushi. The QR code will take customers to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s FishWatch website, which will provide diners with information about the fish they’re consuming, sustainable species on Harney’s menu and the latest news coming from the sustainable seafood world. The initial launch will utilize just one code that will lead to the FishWatch homepage, but the program will eventually include species-specific codes.
