Youth in Arts Honored With Matching Grant

Original art by Elisa Kleven

Youth in Arts has been selected by the San Francisco Foundation as one of 14 arts organizations to receive a matching challenge grant to support our World Premiere 2011 production of The Paper Princess and the Piñata!

Before October 10, the San Francisco Foundation will provide a 1-to-1 match of up to $10,000 in donations received in support of this exciting new work.

The Paper Princess and the Piñata is based on Elisa Kleven’s award-winning book series. Youth in Arts’ Miko Lee is collaborating with Ms. Kleven and Youth in Arts Mentor Artists Miguel Martinez, Nydia Gonzalez and Zenon Barron to adapt the books for the stage.

The original musical will premiere at the Marin Center Showcase Theatre, February 4-5, 2011, with special performances for student groups and, on Saturday, for families. This project is also supported in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
