Woodside: Djerassi artists compound open for sculpture tours


The annual Art/Sky sculpture tours at the Djerassi resident artists facility in Woodside begin this month.

The program makes the private 583-acre program facility in Woodside available on a limited basis from March through November.

Three types of guided tours will be available: six director tours ($50 per person), 12 two-mile tours (free of charge) led by program volunteers, and a limited number of private tours. All types of tours require advance reservations.

A director's tour typically lasts about four-and-a-half hours and covers approximately three-a-half miles, visiting more than 30 sculptures. Director's tours on Thursday, June 18, and Thursday, Sept. 3, will be special sunset hikes. Tickets will be $60. The hikes will end with viewing the sunset from the Artist's Barn. Wine and cheese will be served.

The two-mile tours last about two-and-one-half hours and include 25 sculptures. Private tours are available for groups of 15 to 25 and a suggested donation.

The tours are strenuous as the trails consist of steep uphill and downhill hiking. Reservations will no longer be taken by telephone.
