FRIENDS Of YC Art

The Gathering sculpture


FRIENDS formed in the 1960s to help the YC art faculty set up and maintain a Gallery on campus. Since that time, FRIENDS has expanded its mission. Members now organize projects and educational events which assist, support and raise funds for the Sculpture Garden, student scholarships, the Art Gallery, the Art Department, and Art a la Carte programs.

Through its support of these art related projects, FRIENDS makes a direct contribution to the artistic climate of Prescott.

The Del Decil Collection offered by FRIENDS of YC Art

Decil paintings

FRIENDS finds itself in receipt of a most generous donation from the estate of the late Prescott artist Del Decil. Part of this donation consists of forty of Del’s paintings that she intended to be sold to help support Yavapai College’s art scholarships, campus art programs, and the Sculpture Garden.

Articles have been published about Del Decil and her artwork in numerous national magazines and newspapers including “Who’s Who” and in Prescott Woman, November 2007. Her paintings are in collections in more than 20 states.

View the collection here.

To view or purchase Del Decil’s paintings, please contact Janice Soutee at 928-776-2025 or janice.soutee@yc.edu.
