Built in the early 20th century as an Italian Mediterranean Revival mansion for James Phelan, San Francisco mayor and California senator, Villa Montalvo was bequeathed on his death to the public as a center for the arts. For over 75 years, Montalvo Arts Center has served the community as a center for creativity, offering art courses, performing arts events, gallery exhibitions, educational opportunities, artist residencies and more. Today, Montalvo and its arts programs serve nearly 200,000 visitors each year.
