The Oliver Ranch Story
Located in the heart of Sonoma County, 70 miles north of San Francisco, in a region known internationally for its wineries and scenic pleasures, 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 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.
The Olivers generously open their property for select tour groups specifically to support nonprofit organizations in the Bay Area. We are honored to have the opportunity to visit Oliver Ranch with MAGC’s Leadership Circle members and friends. We will be traveling together from MAGC in a luxury bus and will enjoy a casual lunch in Geyserville following our 2+ hour visit to the Ranch. The tour is a 2.5 mile walk in moderately hilly terrain. Appropriate shoes, hats, and sunscreen are recommended.
