Arts & Commerce is hosted by Robin Young, a graduate of Sunnyside High School. Having left Tucson in 1985 to live along the coast of California, Robin returned to Tucson in 2015 and bought her forever home.
In her years in CA, she was blessed to live a life in which she balanced a life of art, commerce and raising her two wonderful children. With a life-long love of the arts and the people who worked in the arts, and a long history of building and working in small businesses, Robin’s goal with this show is to help businesses connect with the arts organizations and artists in Tucson, to the mutual benefit of each and an even wider benefit to the entire community of Tucson.
