Joining the ranks of other Bay Area institutions seeking to make their exhibitions and collections more accessible to the general public, the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art announced today it will begin offering free admission to Napa and Sonoma city residents the first Wednesday of each month.

(My editor, Gabe Meline, would like me to take this opportunity to remind everyone that, yes, there are really cities named Napa and Sonoma. These are not only counties! And yes, people live there.)

Wednesday, April 3 marks the first day of this new initiative. All that's required for free entry is an ID; the arts center is open on Wednesdays 10am–4pm. di Rosa already offers free admission to visitors age 17 and under, and to college and university faculty. Adult tickets cost $18 per visit; tickets for seniors, members of the military, non-college educators and students are slightly discounted at $15 each.

Currently on view at di Rosa are Viola Frey, an exhibition of the late artist’s large-scale ceramics, paintings, drawings and bronze, and Building a Different Model, a curated selection from the collection.
