Angela McConnell celebrates 10 years
A Milestone Anniversary
This summer, our Executive Director Angela McConnell is celebrating her 10th anniversary at Montalvo. During her tenure, we have transformed our institution into an invaluable space for artists and the community.
"It takes a village," Angela says. "And the Montalvo village is truly special: Our artists inspire me with their innovative ideas. My colleagues astonish me with their their passionate commitment to this place and our programs. And our diverse community, people representing all walks of life, from parents to hikers to educators, from Title 1 schoolchildren to Pulitzer Prize winning artists come here to experience our programs and engage in the creative process."
In honor of Angela's milestone, our Board of Directors commissioned a new artwork to be placed on the empty pedestal of our Four Seasons statue series (the fourth statue has long been missing). In addition, we have created a new beautification fund which will improve and repair many of the aging elements of the property so that Montalvo can continue to be a beautiful respite for our next generation of visitors.
If you would like to make a gift in Angela's honor, contact Emma Moon. You can also donate any amount through the link below to give continued support to the mission that Angela and all of Montalvo's patrons have worked so hard to enact over the past decade.
