Montalvo Arts Center fosters community engagement through the creation and presentation of multidisciplinary art. By uniting the broadest possible audiences with a global community of artists, Montalvo expands the role of arts and culture as an essential community resource.
Montalvo Arts Center is a non-profit multi-disciplinary arts organization and a thriving resource for the people of the South San Francisco Bay Area. Private donations and corporate sponsorship funding along with the proceeds from our Performing Arts Series help to sustain and grow our many community programs, such as Education and Outreach, touching over 10,000 children, at-risk youth, and challenged adults each year. Others include the West Coast's oldest Artist Residency Program, the Gallery and Sculpture on the Grounds, and the Literary Arts Program. At home in its century-old villa nestled among 175 acre park with trails, Montalvo is the perfect place to attend a gallery showing or concert performance, or simply spontaneously visit for an afternoon hike.
