Field Trip to Oliver Ranch

4:00PM Tour Starts – We will return that evening
Located in the heart of Sonoma County 70 miles north of San Francisco, the Oliver Ranch is home to 18 remarkable site-specific installations. The picturesque 100-acre property was originally bought by Steve and Nancy Oliver in 1981 to graze a few extra sheep from, as Steve says, “My daughter’s 4-H project gone bad.” The ranch’s evolution from exiled sheep quarters to world-renowned sculpture ranch was gradual and organic, a natural convergence of the Olivers' longstanding passion for art and deep connection to the land.
Prior to our trip, there will be an informational lecture presented by Gabrielle Gopinath and Benjamin Funke on the major work of artists in the collection.
For more information, please visit the Oliver Ranch Foundaton website.
