The Voigt Family Sculpture Foundation has a special relationship with Paradise Ridge Winery. The Byck and Voigt families are longtime friends and art patrons, and Walter Byck, founder of Paradise Ridge, graciously offered his magnificent sculpture grove for our foundation to curate and install a very special show, called “The Spirit of the Man” in honor of our founder, Al Voigt, who died in 2011. “Spirit” is now in its second year and will close soon, to be replaced by “20@20” a special exhibition of 20 works of art acknowledging 20 years since the winery’s founding. “20@20” opens June 22, 2014 and will be installed until May 2015.
In addition to the curated exhibitions, there are many permanent sculptures at Paradise Ridge, including Robert Ellison’s “Four Times daily” on a bluff overlooking the hills, “LOVE” by Laura Kimpton and Jeff Schomberg, and the incredible “Temple of Remembrance” by David Best and Doug Unkrey.
