If you stop by Redhill Shopping Center to see Santa this weekend, be sure to visit the new YES display case just around the corner from Peet’s Coffee. Donated by Redhill as part of its business partnership with YES, the case shows off a charming collection of student art created by Ross Valley School District children of all ages in YES-funded art classes.
The student work on display, which will be refreshed with new pieces every two weeks, is one of two visual arts collaborations between YES and Redhill. Shopping center management has also contracted with local artisans Tilly Nylin and Linda Weill to install a mural that includes tiles created by students in White Hill’s Ceramics & Mosaic Club. The mural will be located on the façade near CVS. Nylin and Weill are the team behind several local murals, including the obelisk in front of the Ross Valley Fire Station in San Anselmo, and also happen to be the Ceramics & Mosaic Club’s instructors.
In addition to this fabulous support for YES art programs, Redhill has also made a generous financial contribution to the foundation. They are one of 110 local restaurants, shops, lawyers, realtors, dentists and more that donate money, goods and services to YES every year. YES expects to raise $100,000, or 12 percent of its total budget, through the Business Partners program for the 2012-2013 school year.
