ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — New Mexico is known around the world for its arts economy.
Bernalillo County’s Public Art Board is stepping in to help the creative economy through its unsolicited proposal process.
“The arts board is thinking a lot, right now, about the challenges that artists are facing in the midst of COVID-19,” says Bernalillo County Arts Board President Valerie Martínez. “Bernalillo County continues to infuse the economy with funding through the art in public places ordinance, and our unsolicited proposal process allows us to financially support our creative community. We urge artists to submit.”
