Tour of the world-renowned Oliver Ranch June 29th SOLD OUT!


Thank you for your support!

Oliver Ranch is a unique 100 acre preserve dedicated to

Site-Specific Art.

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 most recent of which is Ann Hamilton’s The tower where commissioned dance, poetry, theatre, and music performances take place. The picturesque 100-acre property was originally bought by Steve and Nancy Oliver in 1981 to graze a few extra sheep. The ranch’s evolution to a world-renowned sculpture ranch was gradual and organic, a natural convergence of the Oliver’s longstanding passion for art and deep connection to the land.
