This is a rare opportunity to visit the studios of the Lucas Artists Program at Montalvo Arts Center, which are normally closed to the public. Open Studios are FREE!
Artists will invite you into their studios to explore their current work and creative process.
Artists currently scheduled to be in residence are: composers/musicians/performers Motoko Honda, Jennifer Johns, and Mathew Petty, poet Monica Sok, playwright Preston Lane, filmmaker Tran T. Kim-Trang, visual artists Cassils and Leah Rosenberg, and Montalvo Culinary Artist Andrea Blum.
In addition, at 3pm we will remember beloved Bay Area artist Susan O’Malley as Motoko Honda performs a new composition inspired by her life and work. This performance will be followed by a community walk through Montalvo’s forest trails as we celebrate Susan’s A Healing Walk. The work, which is part of Montalvo’s permanent collection of Art on the Grounds, will have been newly reinstalled in collaboration with Santa Clara County Parks and Recreation.
Enjoy a no-host bar plus Mexican fare by Oaxacan Kitchen Mobile. Parking is free, but limited -- please carpool if possible.
