Come In, We're Open:
Montalvo artists showcase work
in San Francisco—and you're invited!


Leah Rosenberg, Sketch for "Finding Your Center," 2014

Join us next Thursday, July 24, from 6-9pm for an exciting evening celebrating Montalvo at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts entitled Come In, We're Open.

This party will introduce you to our contribution to YBCA's Bay Area Now 7, a triennial exhibition showcasing Bay Area arts organizations. Our contribution is Finding Your Center, a participatory installation by artists Susan O’Malley and Leah Rosenberg that playfully responds to our ceaseless quest for calm and equilibrium in modern life.

The soiree will feature performances by composer Tiffany Lin, musician Andres Solis, and Columbian dancer Sandra Gomez. O’Malley and Rosenberg will also present a performance involving audience participation.

So come on up to the city! Mingle, enjoy food and drink, and get to know the artists. Tickets are only $10 at the door. RSVP via Facebook and invite your friends!
