The 'R' in arts stands for Redmond

Music on the Green

HDSA will have a booth at each Music on the Green event this summer to promote our plan to encourage the City of Redmond to redevelop Evergreen Gym into an civic/even/arts center.

HDSA Merges with Evergreen cultural Arts Committee

The merger of the High Desert Society of the Arts (HDSA) and the Evergreen Cultural Arts Committee has created a permanent non-profit (401c3) structure to advocate for the restoration to the long-empty Evergreen Gym to make it once again a vibrant center for public gatherings, events, performances and the arts in Redmond.
