MLA Productions has been in business since 1986. We handle all the logistics and coordination involved in event and festival production from concept to completion. Subcontractors with whom we have a long-term relationship are often used depending upon the scope and focus of each contract.
Our contracts over the past years have mainly been outdoor art festivals, although we occasionally have produced a few fund-raising events, all-class reunions and various types of promotions.
Our festivals have
a reputation for being well-organized and well-attended. All of our
exhibitors are kept informed and are treated with respect. We thoroughly enjoy
working with people and details; and, events and activities that combine
the two. We are also very committed to working closely with the clients
in order to produce an event in which they will take great pride.
Artists wishing to apply to the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts must be the creator and the producer of the work being sold. Our selection committee is looking for original or limited edition works of art.
