Produced by a volunteer board of directors, under the auspices of the Mill Valley Arts Commission, the annual Milley Awards is a star-studded event that usually sells out. The Milley is a bronze statue sculpted by John Libberton of Sausalito.

The Milleys are sponsored by the Mill Valley Arts Commission and produced by the Milley Awards Board of Directors, a volunteer community group. Nominations are open throughout the year and judges change annually. The award honors those who, through their accomplishments in the arts, have brought honor to the Mill Valley community. They have done this through their talents and actions in the state, national or international arenas.
