Gala for the Good of Arts



The Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival began with a group of artists showing their work in downtown store windows. As the fest grew, it moved to Lytton Square and then to Old Mill Park in 1962. In recent years, Marin’s arts community has taken a financial hit with the rising costs of living, but the Friends of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival are hoping to offer a hand. On September 10, a gala at the Throckmorton Theatre and an after-party at El Paseo will help raise funds and celebrate a milestone: the event marks its sixth decade this year. Printmaker Tom Killion, longtime festival board and committee member — he started his career at the event at age 16 — has created a piece for the anniversary as well. Here are more details about the festival. mvfaf.org
