ranchJoin us on a unique PAL day trip to Sonoma County to visit the Oliver Ranch, one of the most ambitious private collections of site-specific sculpture in the world.

Steve Oliver will lead us on an engaging tour of his picturesque 100-acre ranch, describing how he commissioned a group of internationally-known artists to create a world-class outdoor sculpture collection that complements and punctuates the undulating landscape. Get a taste of the tour in this episode of “Spark” on KQED. After our private tour we will enjoy lunch and wine tasting at Armida Winery before heading back to Palo Alto on our chartered bus.
