Added THU, MAY 30TH 2013
Join us Friday as we kick off
our 2013 Art on the Grounds exhibition in style!
Looking for something fun to do on Friday? Look no further than Final Fridays, our FREE monthly celebration of the artists in our Lucas Artists Residency Program and the inspired work they are creating.
Here's the schedule:
6 - 7pm: Join us on the West Lawn (next to the Villa) to view Alfredo & Isabel Aquilizan's Dwellings: Project Another Country (Saratoga Hills). Participants in the project will be given gifts as a thank you for their work, and guests will have a chance to add to the evolving sculpture.
7:15 - 8:15pm: Proceed to the Carriage House Theatre, where composer Andrea Clearfield will discuss her recent work documenting indigenous melodies in the remote Himalayan region of Lo Monthang, Nepal, which is one of the last remaining enclaves of traditional Tibetan culture. Andrea will also play some compositions inspired by her fascinating field work.
8:15 - 9pm: The evening will culminate with a final viewing of the Happiness is exhibition in the Project Space Gallery. Join artist Susan OMalley as she leads visitors on a nighttime walk around the property.

Workshops seek to connect with the natural world
How does the health of our environment influence our personal wellbeing? How can we reconnect with the natural world upon which we depend?
The project will also include a mobile phone app and guided walk which will premiere on Friday, August 30. Be sure to keep checking montalvoarts.org and our Facebook page for updates on this fascinating, evolving work.
