From Sheep to Art "It all began with the sheep.

From Sheep to Art "It all began with the sheep. The happy herd expanded. Soon the family sheep began winning prizes at California fairs, and the Olivers were eventually courted by a local producer to grow organic lamb for restaurants.

They took up the challenge and began participating in a vibrant, local organic food movement. Disillusioned with valuation in the world of art collecting, the Olivers decided to commission site-specific installations that could not be moved, and therefore, neither bought nor sold. Under these conditions, the focus would be on the art itself, not its assessment. The Olivers also wondered what would happen when artists were virtually freed of traditional constraints.

Undertaking each one-of-a-kind installation in partnership with the artist, the Olivers worked closely and often over long periods of time with the artists, forging close personal relationships. The artists are part family, part collaborators and part idols. Steve adds, "Great artists are some of the greatest minds in the world.

Later Steve serves as a "tour guide", leading a two-and-a-half mile walk for each visiting group, recounting the stories of each installation along the way. These tours, along with original performance works in the tower now drive the Oliver Ranch philanthropic engine.

Unexpected and Innovative Philanthropy "Believe me, we never planned to have tour buses parked in our driveway 30 days a year. Realizing this was a fundraising tool that could help the museum, Steve found himself leading numerous tours. As the ranch grew in acclaim and word of mouth, requests for tours grew and the Olivers saw that their ranch could benefit other non-profits as well.

As a result, the Olivers now make tours available to non-profit organizations who can then offer the tour as an auction item or on a cost-per-ticket basis. Since the tower project was finished in , the Olivers have also commissioned a number of performance artists to create site-specific works for The tower.

These performances are also made available to non-profits to use as fundraising events. While Steve and Nancy never plotted the course of their philanthropy, they recognized and generously took advantage of their unique circumstances so they might give back to the non-profit community through the arts.

Oliver Ranch Foundation "I mean what do you do with such a place? As of , the Olivers contributed to the Oliver Ranch Foundation an undivided interest in the land and the sculptures affixed to the land, with plans for the remaining interests in the land and sculptures to go to the Foundation over the Olivers' lifetimes. The Foundation is committed to celebrating the voice and vision of artists with deep and abiding respect for the transformative power of art.

Excellence and respect for artistic integrity guide all endeavors at the ranch. The Foundation encourages innovative philanthropy by bringing artists, arts organizations and art supporters together to share the creative experience. The Foundation does not give general arts grants outside the ranch programs, but offers non-profit organizations fundraising opportunities through tours and performances at the ranch.

Grants are awarded to artists or art organizations in order to create original site-specific performance works for the tower.
