Welcome to The Outdoor Art Club
The Outdoor Art Club is a private, nonprofit women's organization which was formed in 1902. Our mission is "To preserve the natural scenery of Mill Valley and the surrounding country, to beautify the grounds around public buildings, to work against the wanton destruction of birds and game, to encourage the development of outdoor art and to engage in other civic, literary and charitable work."
The clubhouse is available for rental by the public. See Rental page.
Matthew Stephens is the Director of both the Conservatory of Flowers and the San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park. Come hear about his vision for these bay area treasures and how he is working to further elevate these living museums into international destinations and leaders in plant conservation by connecting plants, people and resources. From the magnificent Magnolia collection to the California Native Garden and the century old Redwood Grove, Stephens oversees over 8,000 different plants from around the world. He welcomes visitors in a place of exceptional beauty in the national historic landmark, the Conservancy of Flowers. Also learn how in his previous role with New York City Parks and Recreation, he led the successful Million Trees New York City campaign that demonstrated the role of beautification in crime reduction. This will be a talk to remember. Please tell a friend and bring a friend to this FREE public event. Light refreshments will be served. For more information about the gardens, click here and here
