Oliver Ranch Performance to Benefit the Art Center

The Oliver Ranch Foundation is generously donating the proceeds from a Zaccho Dance Theatre performance in the Ann Hamilton Tower on July 12 to the Richmond Art Center. The Tower was designed by internationally known visual artist Ann Hamilton and is her first permanent installation anywhere in the world! It's only open a few times a year -- don't miss this rare opportunity which also benefits our work.

Climb the double-helix staircase to the top of the tower and you might also catch a glimpse of sculptural works by artists such as Richard Serra, Viola Frey, Bruce Nauman and more which reside on the Oliver Ranch. Don't miss your chance to experience this amazing piece of property.

Learn more and reserve your spot today. Includes round-trip transportation, food and the performance.
