Montalvo Minutes

If you had one minute to share your passion and creativity with the world, what would you do?

At Montalvo, we believe everyone is an artist. Whether your art form is classical, like painting or dance, or more unconventional, like yoga or juggling, everyone has a creative contribution to make—and we want to see yours! 

Your Montalvo Minute can be any creative expression that moves you: do a demonstration, performance, or recitation; show-and-tell; teach a skill; or more. You don’t have to be a professional, and you don’t have to be perfect! Come to Montalvo and spend a minute as an artist-in-residence.
