STATE OF THE ARTS

A FUNDRAISER FOR UBUNTU THEATER PROJECT AT OLIVER RANCH

Ubuntu Theater Project is spiffing up its new digs! Right now, we are kicking off a $5000 campaign to add a lighting grid and new floor in our home at Flax.

Right now we are offering the first 15 people who contribute to this campaign at a level of $150 or higher access to our upcoming special event State of the Arts!

Donate to join us on Sunday, September 8, 2019 for a very special fundraising event at Oliver Ranch, a world-class outdoor museum of site-specific installations in Sonoma County. We’ll begin with a tour of the grounds and 18 remarkable site-specific installations commissioned by art collector Steve Oliver by internationally recognized artists, including Andy Goldsworthy, Bill Fontana, Ann Hamilton, Richard Serra, and many others.

After the tour we’ll have a delicious lunch while discussing the “state of art” with notable Bay Area theater artists Margo Hall, Steven Anthony Jones, Philip Kan Gotanda, Philippa Kelly, and Carey Perloff, facilitated by Ubuntu Executive Director, Michael Moran.

If you want to contribute but can't make it yourself, let us know you want to donate your spot to an Ubuntu Company Member who will be a part of this special artistic conversation.

When: Sunday, September 8th from 9:30am - 2:30pm

About Oliver Ranch

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 originally bought by Steve and Nancy Oliver in 1981 to graze a few extra sheep from, as Steve says, “My daughter’s 4-H project gone bad.” 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.
