Added THU, MAR 20TH 2014

ArtSplash is April 19!


Join us on Saturday, April 19, from 11am-4pm for a day of art, food, fun, and friends on Montalvo's grounds: our wonderful ArtSplash Community Celebration & Student Arts Festival!

ArtSplash has something for everyone: explore the grounds and see the historic Villa, take part in hands-on art activities, enjoy a guided trail hike, experience performances and art throughout the grounds, and even pop into the Carriage House Theatre for some movies.

You will also have the unique opportunity to go behind the scenes in Open Studios at our Lucas Artists Residency Program, talk with the artists who are living on site, and experience their work firsthand.

A fleet of gourmet food trucks organized by Moveable Feast will be serving delicious food and dessert—offering up seafood, grilled cheese sandwiches, Mexican, Vietnamese, and Middle Eastern food, and (perhaps most importantly) ice cream!

So bring your walking shoes and plan to spend the day. It's a perfect way to have fun with your friends, loved one, or the whole family—and admission is FREE!
