When I posted pictures of my recent work Suspended Animation, I received responses asking where the piece is located and how to see it. I realized that not everyone is familiar with di Rosa, an extraordinary collection of bay area art housed in several buildings across two hundred acres of landscaped and open space in Napa. Founded by Rene di Rosa, who avidly collected and championed the art of northern California, the collection includes the work of over 800 artists including William Wiley, Bill Allan, Enrique Chagoya, Joan Brown, Mildred Howard, Paul Kos and Deborah Butterfield. The sculpture garden, where you'll find Suspended Animation, features work by Mark di Suvero, Ray Beldner and Viola Frey. Now is the perfect time of year to visit di Rosa. Tour information is available at dirosaart.org.
