Art Lovers Tour of Oliver Ranch
Please note, this event has expired.
Tour one of the Bay Area’s most fabulous private art collections
Located in the heart of Geyserville, 70 miles north of San Francisco, Oliver Ranch is home to 18 remarkable site-specific installations commissioned by art collector Steve Oliver. Internationally recognized artists include Andy Goldsworthy, Bill Fontana, Ann Hamilton, Richard Serra, and many others.
A fundraiser for MarinArts, the tour includes transportation from San Rafael in a comfortable Sonoma Airporter bus, and lunch with wine on the patio of Diavola Restaurant in downtown Geyserville.
Art Lovers, don’t miss this tour! It is a unique opportunity to visit Oliver Ranch, as it is only open to tours of nonprofit groups such as MarinArts.
ABOUT OLIVER RANCH FOUNDATION website
The picturesque 100-acre property was originally bought by Steve and Nancy Oliver in 1981 to graze sheep. Avid art collectors, they begin commissioning artists to install artworks around the ranch. For over 25 years, their only direction to the artists has been that they “respond to the land.”
In 2009, Steve and Nancy Oliver partnered with Community Foundation Sonoma County to create the Oliver Ranch Foundation. The Foundation ensures that the Olivers’ vision for the ranch continues into perpetuity and allows them to leave the ranch in local hands.
