To the portfolio of Bay Area power lobbyist Darius Anderson add . . . arts patron. The Sonoma Valley Museum of Art unveils “Revolutionary Island: Tales of Cuban History and Culture” (Jan. 19 to March 24), consisting of Cuban works from the Sarah and Darius Anderson Collection.

Anderson, the protégé of grocery billionaire Ron Burkle and whose Platinum Advisors lobbying footprint extends from San Francisco to Sacramento and Washington D.C., has a well-cultivated interest in Cuba. It’s owing to a boyhood fascination with the life and works of Sonoma favorite son Jack London, who, as it happens, honeymooned in Havana. Anderson and his antiques dealer wife live in Sonoma. Exhibit details are in the museum press release.
