Join Art Works Downtown for a tour of Oliver Ranch, a 100-acre ranch in the Alexander Valley home to one of the largest sculpture collections in the country.
Come see the works of Andy Goldsworthy, Ann Hamilton, Bruce Nauman, Martin Puryear, Richard Serra, and many more amazing artists. To learn about Oliver Ranch visit www.oliverranchfoundation.org or read KQED Arts's write up of Oliver Ranch.
A limited number of tickets are available, so we recommend that you sign up right away!
A private coach from San Rafael is included in your ticket price, and departs at 8:10am sharp from Art Works Downtown at 1337 4th Street. Rain or shine, the tour will be held. Comfortable walking shoes are highly suggested as the 2-3 hour tour covers approximately 2.5 miles with 600 feet of up and down elevation change; it can be likened to a light hike in the woods as the paths are unpaved. Unfortunately, the property is not wheelchair accessible.
After our walking tour, Warnecke Ranch and Vineyards will serve as the perfect backdrop as you enjoy the brown bag lunch you brought from home and learn about Warnecke’s architecture archive, the history of the ranch and vineyard, and their Chalk Hill Artist Residency.
Tour price includes the private tour of Oliver Ranch, a tour of Warnecke Ranch and Vineyards, and chartered bus service to and from San Rafael. Remember, please bring a bag lunch.
*Steve Oliver generously makes his ranch available for special tours as a means of increasing philanthropic support for local non-profits. Please consider investing in Art Works Downtown’s future by purchasing a ticket at the Sponsor level. Sponsors ($500) of the Oliver Ranch Art Tour will help underwrite expenses for the event as well as support this year’s arts programming and more. The tour price is included in the donation.
Open to ages 10 and up
