In that time, he and his wife, Veronica, put together a massive collection of works by some of the area's most renowned artists. In August 2008, GALLERY CRAWL took a trip to the di Rosa Preserve in Napa Valley to chat with curator Michael Schwager and to check out a few of the nearly 2,200 works of art in all media -- by more than 900 Bay Area artists -- in the preserve's permanent collection.</p> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> di Rosa preserve Gallery Crawl KQED Michael Schwager Napa Rene di Rosa Contemporary Art KQED 80538887b0d27c53 Tue, 28 Jul 2009 05:04:26 +0000 mtaylor 3869 at
