Rock the Garden
Join us for an explosion of fun on Friday, June 27, starting at 6pm as we kick off our summer Art on the Grounds with Rock the Garden, our biggest Final Friday Art Party of the year!
Featuring live music, food trucks, beer & wine, playful games, and participatory art works, this will be Montalvo at its summer best!
Artists from the Lucas Artists Residency Program will be on hand bringing their pieces to life: Terry Berlier's acoustic sculptures will be 'played' by Chris Chafe, Luciano Chessa and Ellen Fullman; Ana Gallardo and her dance collaborators will get visitors on their feet with a Cuban dancing style called danzón; Miguel Arzabe will organize games on the lawn, including the entertaining FACEBALL; and Michael Hall will challenge those who are bold enough to compete in an obstacle courseof art.
All the while, you'll be enjoying an evening on Montalvo's beautiful grounds! Grab some beer, wine, and food from Oaxacan Kitchen, Whisk on Wheels, or MoBowl, plus dessert from Rocko's Ice Cream Tacos. Try to snag a seat at Kenny Scharf's Pikaboom (pictured above), which is more than just a strikingly cartoonish work of art: it's also a picnic table!
Admission is FREE! Visitors are encouraged to RSVP here or on our Facebook Page.
Please consider carpooling, and arrive early, as parking may fill up.
We hope to see you there!
