Art in the Garden
Art is the expression of human creative skill and imagination. At the 2012 OAC Gardens, Art and Architecture Tour on April 26th, patrons will be able to view a wide and diverse spectrum of how the owners of five different Mill Valley properties have transformed their own homes into art.
All the homes in this year’s tour are within walking distance of downtown thus located within a few blocks of our historic clubhouse at One West Blithedale Ave. in downtown Mill Valley. This will enable attendees to easily stroll, shuttle or cycle between them.
The homes on this tour were built between 1909 and 1941. From a beautifully restored craftsman to an exemplar of a remodel using advanced green-building practices and sustainable technologies, these homes exhibit an astonishing range of possibilities seen by these creative and artistic home owners. Join us for a tour that will stir your own imagination.
We invite the public to Shuttle, Stroll or Cycle to visit these five fabulous Mill Valley Homes in the downtown area staring from the 1904 Bernard Maybeck designed clubhouse in the heart of Mill Valley, CA. Exact locations are a surprise. Shuttles leave the Outdoor Art Club at One West Blithedale Ave. in downtown Mill Valley beginning at 9:30 a.m. The last shuttle leaves the clubhouse at 2:00 p.m. Private cars are not permitted.
A luncheon will be served at The Outdoor Art Club from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for an additional fee, limited seating. On the Patio, there will be gifts and plants for sale, a silent auction and experts to answer your gardening and conservation questions.
