ABOUT MONTALVO ARTS CENTER AND LUCAS ARTISTS PROGRAM Montalvo Arts Center is a member-supported nonprofit institution whose mission is to create and present art of all types, nurture artists, and use its historic buildings and grounds in innovative ways that engage people in the creative process. Located on 175 acres in Silicon Valley's Saratoga Hills, Montalvo aspires to serve as a catalyst for creativity, connection, and critical inquiry. Montalvo is home to the Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP), a creative incubator and cultural producer dedicated to supporting artists from all creative disciplines and geographical locations to create and present new and challenging contemporary work.

This project was made possible thanks to a 2016 grant from Art Matters Foundation, and the generosity of Ducklings Inc. (for HUGVR), Pine Cone Lumber, and The Ricoh Company, Ltd.
It was also made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. For more information please visit www.calhum.org.
