Historically, locals met at Dwight Murray Plaza, saying, “meet me at the clock tower!” With the clock tower gone, and the plaza revitalized, the city needs a new landmark. Dr. Dwight Murray, fro whom the plaza is names, often wore a rose in his suit lapel. We celebrate this local history with rose patterned site-specific sculptures and plaza paving. The illuminated beacons and café-style string lighting activate the plaza. The paving serves as a dynamic surface for activity. The rose is an iconic symbol, unifying the space. Together, the sculptures and paving, create a sense of place and identity for Napa. Once again people will gather here, now saying, “meet me at the rose!”
