Presented in partnership with Arts Council Napa Valley and Visit Napa Valley, the show includes work from the private art collections  of Francis and Eleanor Coppola, Margrit Mondavi, Jan Shrem, and Norman and Norah Stone. Each collector is sharing work that they feel best expresses the spirit of their collection.

Curated by Ann Trinca, the exhibition includes works by Robert Arneson, Joan Brown, Marc Chagall, Roy DeForest, Stephen DeStaebler, David Ireland, Pablo Picasso, Cy Twombly, Peter Voulkos and William Wiley.

The show, which runs through May 26, is a collaborative effort between the Arts Council Napa Valley and Napa Valley Museum.
