Montalvo Arts Center is a historic, non-profit organization whose mission is to engage people in the creative process, acting as a catalyst for exploring the arts, unleashing creativity, and advancing different cultural and cross-cultural perspectives.

Located in the Saratoga hills, Montalvo occupies a Mediterranean-style villa on 175 stunning acres, which Senator James Duval Phelan left to the people of California for the encouragement of art, music, literature, and architecture.

The organization is also home to the Lucas Artists Programs, which offers facilities and staff supportive of the creative process, state-of-the-art technology and an environment conducive to both individual practice and the energetic exchange of ideas among international and culturally diverse fellows.

Funding for Montalvo's arts programs is provided by contributions from individuals, foundations, corporations and government agencies.
Montalvo Arts Center is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.

  • Beautiful, gorgeous, garden. It's the perfect place to bring kids roaming around the grass or hike around the trails. You can find art pieces everywhere you go
