Categories: Photography

Many of you may remember or were apart of The Face of Redlands, part 1 photographed by renowned photographer Marc Piron. This was a Homeless Awareness Campaign with proceeds presented to the Youth Hope Foundation and Salvation Army.

The Face of Redlands, part 2 "YOUNGBLOODS!" a Marc Piron Project...a photography art exhibit. The purpose is to rally together raising funds though DCAF (Downtown Community Art Fund) for unique art installments to Downtown Redlands and the Downtown Art Walk that will add to Redlands integrity and beauty while aligning with our goal of attracting people to this town for continual prosperity and growth. A community’s downtown area is the face it presents to the world. Its condition speaks volumes about the health of the local economy. A vibrant downtown affects the community’s ability to attract tourists, businesses, jobs, and investment that enable a town to endure and thrive.

WHO: This is a project where 40 individuals were selected who are a significant part of this town and moving it forward. We are calling this group the "Youngbloods" as they are all under 40 years of age -- 40 under 40.

WHAT: Photography exhibit produced by Redlands photographer Marc Piron. These images will showcase who the YOUNGBLOODS are as individuals and the uniqueness of their personalities.


300 coffee table books produced which includes all images with a mission statement from each Youngblood. Books will be available for purchase during the Downtown ArtWalk for $45. Cash and credit card accepted. Checks made out to: Redlands Community Foundation. All Proceeds from books sales go to the Downtown Community Art Fund (DCAF) c/o the Redlands Community Foundation.

Groups tours available with Marc Piron. Contact Marc 909.263.7550 for availability.

The synergy of this team is to in some way help develop a more dynamic and vibrant community that embraces its rich history while contemporaneously supporting new campaigns that reflect the spirit of these young entrepreneurs.
