HISTORY AND COLLECTION
Sited on over 200 extraordinary acres of vineyard, gardens, and natural landscape in the Carneros Appellation of the Napa Valley, di Rosa originated as the shared vision of Rene and Veronica di Rosa, prolific collectors whose personal passion for art and adventuresome spirits fueled their support of art and artists. Their home and the famed vineyards around Winery Lake became the focal point not only for their life, but the development of the world class art collection that is now housed in three buildings, both contemporary and historic, as well as on the surrounding landscape.
Considered the most significant holding of Bay Area art in the world, di Rosa houses approximately 2,000 works of art by more than 800 artists. The collection includes significant works by Mark di Suvero, Robert Arneson, Roy de Forest, Enrique Chagoya, Manuel Neri, Joan Brown, William T. Wiley, Robert Hudson, Richard Shaw, Bruce Nauman, Deborah Butterfield, John Buck, David Best, Larry Sultan, Raymond Saunders, Bruce Conner, Allan Rath, Nathan Oliveira, Mildred Howard, Paul Kos, Squeak Carnwath, Viola Frey, Steven de Staebler, and many others.
Incorporated as a nonprofit public trust in 2000, today di Rosa continues to grow with a singular vision, to be a place that provokes the artistic spirit and imagination of our time. Come visit and experience art in a new way – Art Alive!
