The Collection

di Rosa originated as the vision of Rene di Rosa (1919-2010), a prolific collector whose famed vineyards enabled his development of a world-class art collection that was incorporated as a nonprofit public trust in 2000. Now housed across three galleries and around the surrounding landscape, the collection is considered the most significant holding of Bay Area art in the world. A wide range of styles and subject matter provides an overview of the creative energy and freedom to experiment that characterize this region of California.
