About Montalvo Arts Center:
Since its conception, the Mediterranean-style house on the hill, as well as its general surroundings, has been known as Villa Montalvo. Now, the historic Villa and the 175-acre property it resides on are known as Montalvo Arts Center. The name reflects the growth, new direction and other general changes the organization has made in the past few years, including the addition of the Sally and Don Lucas Residency Program in October 2004. Montalvo is the one of the most distinguished arts organizations serving Silicon Valley and the extended San Francisco Bay Area as a center for creativity.

“The event itself was amazing. I’ve seen pictures of Montalvo before and I knew it would be magical–but OMG it was crazy to see it in person. The grounds were beautiful, I felt like running around with my arms spread out (you know, like you’re flying? :P)” – Leanne P
“My favorite moment was hula hooping on the lawn surrounded by bubbles, and those cute girls body painted like elves. Next party, can we all have body paint and wings?” – Laura F
