About us

The Yorba Linda Arts alliance Foundation promotes, supports and creates awareness of the arts in North Orange County- through programs, events, partnerships and cultural alliances.



                                         The Yorba Linda Arts Alliance Foundation was founded in 1999 by
                                         Gabriella Rollins, a Yorba Linda resident and arts advocate.

                       Gabriella was keenly aware that the Yorba Linda community was
                                         missing an artistic cultural base to promote and recognize the arts.
                                         She actively engaged with the City of Yorba Linda to create various
                                         events and programs to elevate art awareness.
Today we now have
                                         the Yorba Linda Arts Alliance Foundation to allow her vision to
                                         grow even more.
