In July of 2015, a longterm dream of YAYA came true with the opening of the new YAYA Arts Center. Located on LaSalle st at the crossroads of Uptown and Central City, the Arts Center centralizes YAYA’s Painting and Glass Studio in one location, plus offers the Gore Family Fund Gallery featuring works of students and professionals, and is available for rental for teaching workshops, and special events and parties.

This Arts Center would not have been possible without the generous support of YAYA Patrons and Sponsors, but there is still lots to be done as we move into Phase II. Click here for a list of available sponsorships for the next phase of YAYA!
