The di Rosa in Napa, a gorgeous gallery set in the vineyards of southern Napa, is confronting some of the biggest issues of our age in a new show called Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times. Commissioning a number of Bay Area artists to present new work on the themes of citizenship, manifest destiny, and American exceptionalism, the di Rosa has invited what seems an artistic response to the right-wing politics of the Trump administration. Be Not Still comes to the di Rosa Museum Nov. 4, and continues through May 27. Details here.
