By the Numbers with 516 Arts

  • 516 ARTS, located at 516 Central SW in Downtown Albuquerque, was opened in 2006 by founder and Executive Director Suzanne Sbarge. The McCune Foundation, which owns the building where 516 ARTS is located, asked Sbarge to create a beautiful and engaging exhibition space that would bring the community together around the arts.

    With a strong focus on education, 516 ARTS brings people together to experience, think, feel, discuss and learn through interacting with art and artists. Their programming revolves around curated, thematic exhibitions in our Downtown venue and includes performances, artist talks, public forums, workshops, youth programs, public art and collaborations.

    According to Sbarge, the nonprofit organization’s greatest accomplishment is “being asked by The Andy Warhol Foundation in New York to serve as a Regional Regranting Program partner to provide grants to local artists for experimental, collaborative art projects. We did not apply for this opportunity, but were sought out to fill this role of funding artists directly. This is an incredible honor and is a real game changer for our organization and community.”

  • They also provide outreach programs around Albuquerque at schools, libraries, open space and more as well as public murals on numerous Downtown buildings.
  • 516 ARTS is open from noon-5 p.m. on Tuesdays through Saturdays.
  • For additional information, call 505-242-1445 or visit www.516arts.org.
