Berkeley Art Center Tour of Oliver Ranch
Sunday, June 2, 10am
Join BAC for a very special tour around the grounds of the privately owned Oliver Ranch in Sonoma County, which features an extraordinary array of commissioned artworks in dialogue with the surrounding environment. Tour participants will view installations throughout the property, including works by internationally renowned artists such as Andy Goldsworthy, Ann Hamilton, Viola Frey, Martin Puryear and Richard Serra.
Located in the heart of Sonoma County, the Oliver Ranch is a picturesque 100-acre property and home to 18 remarkable site-specific installations by 20 award-winning artists spanning 35 years. Oliver Ranch is only open to groups supporting a nonprofit, so this is a rare chance to see this incredible collection.
The tour takes approximately 2.5 hours and is likened to a light hike in the woods, as paths are unpaved. Price includes a private tour of the Oliver Ranch, lunch, and transportation to and from the Berkeley Art Center. We will be traveling by car and enjoying food nearby after the tour.
A limited number of non-refundable tickets are available by invitation. Proceeds provide much-needed support for BAC’s exhibitions and programs supporting local emerging artists.
Please note: There are no public restrooms on site at the Oliver Ranch, and each tour group MUST arrive together in a maximum of four cars. BAC’s tour starts promptly at 10 am. You will receive instructions coordinating departure time and location by email several weeks before the tour.
