Tiffany Singh begins installing
stunning The Bells of Mindfulness
Visit Montalvo in the coming weeks and you can be a part of Lucas Artists Residency fellow Tiffany Singh's The Bells of Mindfulness - the latest work to be installed on the Montalvo grounds as part of our current outdoor exhibition, COME HEALING.
Drawing on the Buddhist tradition of using temple bells as a tool to cultivate mindfulness, Singh is suspending 1000 bells from a persimmon tree in the Italianate Garden, creating a tranquil space for rest and reflection.
Join Singh under the persimmon tree to discuss The Bells of Mindfulness, meditate, and make paper cranes on July 4, 14, 18, 20, 21, and 25, from 11:30am-1:30pm. On July 26, at 6pm, we will celebrate the work at our FREE Final Fridays event!

Phelan Cactus Garden
If you enjoy nature's curiosities, now is the time to take a stroll down to the Phelan Cactus Garden (located through the gate at the base of the Great Lawn; follow the path past the Love Temple): Our century plant (Agave americana) - one of the oldest in the garden - is nearly ready to bloom.
