Announcing new Lucas Artists Fellows
Announcing new Lucas Artists Fellows
We are proud to announce our most recent Lucas Artists Fellowship awards to 33 artists of exceptional talent from across the US and the world. 
This distinguished group includes individuals from 16 countries working in the fields of visual arts, architecture, urbanism, and design, and encompasses visual media such as drawing, painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, film, design, and printmaking, as well as artists working in the fields of performance, social practice, and sound art.
After being nominated by a distinguished panel, these artists must pass through a highly selective jury process; each artist selected is awarded three months in the Lucas Artists Residency over three years, with the ability to return multiple times. Lucas Artists Fellows are also welcomed to bring collaborators into residence with them.
We look forward to welcoming this truly remarkable group of artists into the creative community of the Lucas Artists Program. To learn more about each artist, click the button below. 

Our programs this summer have been inspirational!
Thank You For an Extraordinary Summer
With the completion of our inaugural Montalvo Summer Nights series this month, we couldn’t be happier or more thankful for all who joined us at Sunset Cinema; A Midsummer Night's Dream; Starry, Starry Night; a Live Music Dance Party; our Threads: Weaving Humanity festival; and Chris Botti in the Garden Theatre.
We are honored to serve our community with programs that enable people to live lives of deeper connection, engagement, and joy every single day.  
As we approach the end of our fiscal year on September 30, please help us reach our goal of $100,000. A gift of any amount will have an impact for the thousands of families and students that we serve. We thank you sincerely and look forward to seeing you at our upcoming fall season of events.

The Mending Project
Now Open: The Mending Project
You're invited to take part in a participatory installation by artist Lee Mingwei: The Mending Project — open to the public every Thursday–Sunday from 12–4pm until December 8 in Montalvo's historic cottages.
The Mending Project uses thread, color, and sewing as a point of departure to create meaningful connections between strangers and bring people together in conversation.
Bring a garment or textile in need of repair and a volunteer “mender” will invite you to sit and talk while they creatively mend your item. Garments may remain in the installation space as part of the art work and can be picked up at the closing reception.
To visit, park in Lot 2 and walk up the paved walkway parallel to the woods. The cottages will be on your right hand side; just come on in and join the conversation!
