Overview

For over eight decades, Montalvo has fostered a vision of creativity, experimentation, and universal access to the arts. Today, Montalvo embraces art as the ultimate gift to humanity, an enduring treasure, and the very essence of our programs and exhibitions. From visual and performing arts to fine arts and literary arts, Montalvo offers something for everyone.

Residency Program

A creative incubator for artists from any discipline.

The Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP) is a creative incubator and cultural producer dedicated to investing in artists and their work. We support visual artists, composers, writers, performers, scholars, and others from around the world to undertake critical investigations of contemporary issues, and to create and present new and experimental works.
