This Week In My Studio
Peek Inside the Artist Studios
If you're curious to learn more about the artists our programs help to support, you're encouraged to browse the This Week In My Studio features on our Lucas Artists Program (LAP) online magazine & digital archive.
Updated frequently, these vignettes give a quick glimpse into the work our Artist Fellows are doing, from guest artist Margaret Kemp and her experimental photo & film project, to playwright Alva Rogers giving a glimpse into her writing process, to musician Gina Leishman and the painter who inspired the chamber opera she's composing.
Want to learn more about the creative incubator that is the LAP? Revisit some of our past projects, keep up-to-date on upcoming programs, find ways to engage with our events, and learn about the world-class artists who are coming through the residency by exploring the full magazine:

The Subdudes
The Dudes Abide
Join us next Saturday, November 8 at 7:30pm for the “rootsy, harmony-soaked sound” of The Subdudes as they bring their poppy summer jams to really tie the indoor Carriage House Theatre together.
Over the course of 25 years and ten albums, one thing has come to light: the Subdudes have emerged as one of America’s national music treasures. This New Orleans group performs a vibrant blend of soulful R&B, cheeky rock ‘n’ roll, and warm folk harmonies that will remind you of your favorite lost Credence tapes. 
More than a just a concert, the “dudes” leave you feeling like they’re having a party...and you were lucky enough to be invited. So pour yourself a caucasian, kick back, and enjoy.

The Griffin Society
Griffin Society: Planned Giving Ideas
As we approach the holiday season, we wanted to let you know there are several affordable ways to support Montalvo Arts Center by way of planned giving:
  • Gifts of Will or Trust: Remember Montalvo Arts Center in your will or trust without affecting your cash flow.
  • Gifts of your Retirement Plan Assets: Use your assets that are subject to higher taxes to fund a gift and leave more tax-favorable assets to your family.
  • Gifts of Stocks/Bonds/Mutual Funds: Take advantage of appreciated securities without incurring capital gains tax.
  • Gifts of Life Insurance: You don't need a large estate to make a gift. Designate us as a beneficiary of your life insurance.
  • Gifts of Real Estate: Real estate makes a gift that you can leave in exchange for tax benefits.
Designating gifts of this nature will give you recognition in our Griffin Society and help to ensure that all of Montalvo’s treasures will be enjoyed for generations to come. Show your love and appreciation of Montalvo with this special gift! 
For more information, we encourage you to contact your financial advisor, bank, or attorney, or email Emma Moon for recommendations!
