SARATOGA, Calif. — Montalvo Arts Center’s Sally and Don Lucas Artists Program is proud to announce its most recent Lucas Artists Fellowship awards to 33 artists of exceptional talent from across the US and the world. This distinguished group includes individuals from 16 countries working in the fields of visual arts, architecture, urbanism, and design.
Every three years, by discipline, the Lucas Artists Program (LAP) invites a distinguished panel of international nominators to identify up to three emerging, mid-career, or established artists who have the potential to become significant voices of their generation.
Each artist selected is awarded three months in the Lucas Artists Residency over three years, with the ability to return multiple times. This represents significant ongoing support for an artist’s work over a three-year period.
Located within a 175-acre public park and historic property in the heart of the Silicon Valley in California, the Lucas Artists Program (LAP) is an interdisciplinary creative incubator and cultural producer dedicated to investing in artists from all disciplines and geographical locations and to supporting the creative process and sharing of ideas. The LAP provides artists with time and space to develop new work, take risks, and forge collaborative partnerships. The LAP also supports artists as they engage the community in critical conversation through the creation and presentation of new work and varied public program offerings. This approach is grounded in Montalvo’s belief that artists’ voices enrich our world and serve as a catalyst for debate about issues important to us all.
Montalvo houses the oldest artist residency program on the West Coast of the US, hosting artists since 1939.
