May 6: Silicon Valley Gives
will take your gift further!

Donations can be doubled, tripled, or more
on special "Day of Giving"

Montalvo's Arts Education Programs are worth supporting!

You already know about Montalvo's commitment to the arts: Our education programs place teaching artists into local schools, bringing the arts into classrooms and enriching students' learning experiences in powerful ways. Through the Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP), we support world-class artists as they create and present amazing work right here in your back yard - often for free. 

As a member-supported non-profit organization, we rely on donations from people like you to make all of this possible. With that in mind, we are excited to tell you about a great opportunity to show your support: On Tuesday, May 6th, Silicon Valley Gives, a 24-hour celebration of non-profit giving, will help make your donations count more than ever.

Any donation you make to Montalvo that day through SVGives will go even further thanks to thousands of dollars in prize money and matching grants from the Silicon Valley Community Foundation.

You can choose to contribute to our Teaching Artists Residency Program, the LAP, or to the Reactivation of the Grand Villa Entrance and Transformation of the West Lawn - a donation that is automatically doubled thanks to a matching grant from the Hind Foundation.

These gifts are tax-deductible and can be pre-scheduled NOW. Plus, the more donors choosing Montalvo, the more chances we have to earn additional awards. So be sure to share our page with your friends on Facebook and Twitter

ArtSplash 2014Last Saturday, we held our spectacular Community Celebration & Student Arts Festival, ArtSplash on the grounds. It was a beautiful day filled with families, art, performances, food, and fun.

If you were there, THANK YOU for being a part of this perfect day! It could not have been a party without you. Click here to check out our Facebook photo album; if you see your smiling face, tag yourself. (More photos are coming soon!)

Whether or not you were with us for ArtSplash, we have plenty of reasons to visit Montalvo this year: take in a Summer Concert; send your kids to Summer Camp; get artsy at Final Friday; dress up for Food & Wine; or dress down for a trail hike or guided tour.

Keep up to date with all of our events here—and we'll see you next time!


Final Friday Art Party
examines Connecting
in the 21st Century

Find Love at the Final Friday Art Party

April is winding down (already?!), and that means it's time for an Art Party! Join us this Friday, April 25, starting at 6pm for a multi-disciplinary art evening featuring live performance, participatory activities, and conversation.

Prepare to connect as you meet and mingle with artists around a unique food and color activity created by Christy Chan and Leah Rosenberg. Afterwards, take in a beautiful musical performance of a work penned by composer Howard Hersh, followed by an enlightening panel discussion with several artists-in-residence about how we connect in the 21st century.

The evening concludes with tours by artists Allison Wiese and Aaditi Joshi of their new works recently installed on Montalvo’s grounds. Beer, wine, and freshly-prepared tacos will be for sale! There's a $10 suggested donation at the door.

Read more about the night on our blog. Be sure to RSVP below or on our Facebook page (and invite your friends)!
