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.

It’s not really art, but it is original.
Worried that they would spend all week painting the bedsheets only to have their vulgar banner confiscated as soon as it was unfurled, fans of Turkish soccer team Karsiyaka took a more imaginative approach to fan abuse.
They created a QR code banner. Inevitably, the banner was immediately scanned on the phones of scores of curious supporters of opposing team Goztepe. The code displays text calling Goztepe fans sons of bitches in a variety of languages. Scan it to see:
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.
- 4 assorted posters TC - A2 (59x42cm) impressession high quality with UV coating on coated 200gr.
- TC 100 flyers printed recto / verso, A6 (10.5×14.8cm.

Interesting use of QR Codes in the classroom. Create QR Code text quizzes, no internet connection required! I tried it out, works very well, try it out here; QR Treasure Hunt Generator
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/

German Cinemas let people experience how homeless people feel in winter – live at the movies. They turned dow the air conditioning and let people donate using QR Codes on the blankets! (1:28 in the video)
Brazil’s largest youth and student travel organization Central de Intercâmbio has a print campaign running showing flags of the world composed from QR Codes. The idea is that students can cut out the ads and use them as pocket travel guides. The large QR Code in the Spanish flag below resolves to a mobile site with comprehensive information on the city of Madrid.

The Dutch company LogoBorduurstudio have produced a YouTube video of a computer controlled embroidery machine creating a QR Code. The company based in Barneveld, The Netherlands will embroider a QR Code on either an item of clothing you send them or on any item from their range of casual and work wear. The QR Codes measure 6cm square without a border and 7cm square with a border. It costs $65 but I would guess that there is a significant amount of setup time involved. I had some excellent printed t-shirts made at Zazzle.com
Created by Australian-based start-up of the same name, Sharetapes are physical cards that you can load with playlists from YouTube, Spotify, 8tracks and more. You can then share your playlist on other people’s smartphones via near-field communication (NFC) technology or quick response (QR codes) scanning codes.
To play your tape, either tap with NFC (recent Android, Windows and Blackberry devices) or scan with a QR code reader (iPhones and non-NFC devices).
It is too bad that the example code is only a number and not a YouTube video about the product.
