Art and astronomy collide at Montalvo’s fifth annual Starry, Starry Night: Art & Astronomy Slumber Party.

Coinciding with the beginning of the Perseid meteor showers, Starry, Starry Night invites the community to learn about the vast night skies and the art it inspires. Enjoy stimulating astronomy talks by guest astronomers, view the stars through powerful telescopes, and hear a storyteller weave tales of the night sky. Explore space through contemporary art installations and films, and create art inspired by the heavens. Sleep under the stars on Montalvo's front lawn and wake to breakfast at the historic Villa.

“Round ‘bout 12:30 a.m., I was standing on the lawn, surrounded by sleeping people, listening to them breathe, watching spots of red light thread through the darkness. It was like a beautiful art happening.  Maybe it was.”  – Steven  

“Thanks for letting me and my dad participate this year. It was a really special thing we could do together and we had a great time. I know everyone else did too.” – Nick
