2015 is a year for celebration at Montalvo! We mark two important anniversaries: 75 continuous years as an artists residency and the 10-year jubilee of our Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency campus.
To commemorate the occasion, our alumni Artist Fellows around the world are mounting events honoring Montalvo's commitment to supporting artists and their work. These events range from large parties to solo moments and interventions, in cities from Mumbai to Los Angeles to Marrakech and more. Follow along on our blog at blog.montalvoarts.org.
One of these parties is Friday night's spectacular Rock the Garden event on our own grounds! Join us from 6-10pm for an evening of music, performance, and interactive art. There'll be food trucks, beer & wine, and plenty to see as we celebrate our residency. The event is FREEand so is parking (if you head over to West Valley College, Lot 5, and take the free shuttle).
Join our Facebook event through the button below and you'll see a list of some of the amazing coming to the festival. You can also invite your friends, and if you click JOIN, you'll see updates from the worldwide celebrations as they're posted to the blog. We hope to see you tomorrow night!

Montalvo is a member-supported
dedicated to the arts.
It may be hard to believe, but if you've got kids, summer break is nearly over! The good news is that there's still time to sign them up for one or two last Summer Camps at Montalvo before they head back to the classroom.
Our innovative camps bring experienced, professional artists and educators to our beautiful grounds, where students can learn and get creative in a one-of-a-kind environment. Take a look at what we've got coming up:
