Tom Golden Collection

In 2001, Tom Golden of Freestone in Sonoma County donated his collection of works by renowned artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude to the Sonoma County Museum. Golden’s personal and professional relationship with the artists began when he met them during the 1974 public hearings for the approval of their momentous project Running Fence, Sonoma and Marin counties, California, 1972-1976. Tom Golden’s collection reflects his friendship with and admiration of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Approximately 125 original drawings, sculptures, collages and photographs trace their impressive careers.
