Oliver Ranch is located in the heart of Sonoma County, 70 miles north of San Francisco, and 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 bought by Steve and Nancy Oliver in 1981. 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 ACF (Art at the Cheese Factory) enhances the art experience in Marin County by presenting new art of high quality and artwork designed for specific sites. With our 2011 "A Season of Water" we entered a new phase of exhibiting art in a variety of public spaces, inviting venues, curators and artists to participate in an outreach program of exhibitions & events. It is our mission to contribute to the availability of contemporary work so that the public will have ready, often unexpected access to the art of their time.
