Message from CEO/Founder – Rebecca Ybarra : “Growing up, I was surrounded by creative people. I was allowed to create freely and was given the materials and motivation to do so. My passion is building an outlet for people to create. As an adult, I realized how important creative expression was to lead a healthy life, and how that same expression leads to a thriving community. Imagine Arts Center is a forum for both individuals and community, to be heard and express what’s on their mind in a creative way. I hope to always be creating, and sharing ideas with you.”
