Located in scenic Napa Valley, di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art engages its community in the connective power of art and nature through its permanent collection of Northern California art, contemporary exhibitions, and thought-provoking educational programs that inspire creativity and curiosity.

About di Rosa

di Rosa opened to the public in 1997 as a means to showcase the personal collection of Northern California art held by Rene and Veronica di Rosa. Located on 217 protected acres in the Carneros region of Napa, di Rosa includes two large art galleries, a beautiful lake, abundant birding, walking trails with vineyard views, outdoor sculptures, and picnic grounds.


di Rosa presents contemporary exhibitions by Bay Area-based artists. di Rosa maintains a permanent collection of notable works by artists with ties to the Bay Area from the mid-twentieth century to the early 2000s. Collection highlights include works by Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Jay DeFeo, Roy De Forrest, and William T. Wiley.


di Rosa’s temporary exhibitions rotate approximately every four months; selected works from the permanent collection are always on view.


Complementing and amplifying the collection and exhibitions, multi-disciplinary programs and partnerships are activated throughout the calendar year. These include tours, artist talks, site-wide festivals, hikes, art and nature summer camps for children, studio classes, and theatrical and musical performances.

What began as a personal collection and dedication to the land has become an essential destination for art and nature lovers in the storied Napa Valley.
