SANTA FE, N.M. — In hopes of attracting supporters for its proposed new space, the Make Santa Fe art collective’s exhibition this weekend, “MADE IN SANTA FE,” showcases what its members create in a shared workroom.
Make Santa Fe, a nonprofit that provides a place where artists can reserve time to use large equipment and tools like laser cutters, 3-D printers, high-powered woodworking saws and welding equipment, is currently housed in an approximately 6,000-square-foot building on All Trades Road, off Siler Road.
But in the future, the planned Siler Yard Arts and Creativity Center – a project that is still under development that announced in 2015 that it will include 60 to 70 low-income housing units for artists and a large “shared resource center” – expects to have Make Santa Fe and its space-sharing idea as an “anchor tenant.”
“It’s mostly about bringing awareness and new stakeholders into the fold on the project,” said Zane Fischer, coordinator at Make Santa Fe, about Saturday evening’s event.
