Party time at Final Friday!
New work, art sale, food,
film, & more: July 26

If you haven't come to Montalvo for a
Final Friday lately, you've been missing out! This monthly art celebration is turning into one of the best little parties in town. So be sure to join us on Friday, July 26, at 6pm, as we celebrate artist Tiffany Singh's new work, The Bells of Mindfulness.

The evening begins on the Great Lawn and in the Italianate Garden, where the spectacular work is installed. As the night progresses, Singh will host an artist talk in the Carriage House Theatre, and will present a short film about the creation of the project. She will close out the event by gifting bells to guests: an important component of the piece.

Enjoy a glass of wine or beer, grab dinner and dessert from our food vendors, and mingle with new friends. Framed works by some of our resident artists will be for sale. You'll also have a chance to tour all of our Art on the Grounds, and don't be surprised if you're treated to some special performances!

Admission is FREE. Be sure to RSVP on our Facebook page and invite your friends to come, too! We hope to see you there.
