11/27/2018

Bernalillo County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins invites you to an Artist’s Reception for the new District 3 Art Exhibit, FINDING FOCUS two, Thursday, Nov. 29, from 4:30-6:00 p.m. on the 10th Floor of One Civic Plaza NW, Suite 10111. This show is the 48th in a series of exhibits showcasing the talent and creativity of Bernalillo County artists.

The artists in this exhibit are participants in a Bernalillo County program where they learn the techniques of photography while exploring open spaces and historical sites throughout the area. At the end of the program their photos become part of the Betty Sabo Inventory, a permanent art collection that is managed by the of the Bernalillo County Public Arts program. The photos will be displayed in Bernalillo County facilities.

Bernalillo County's Public Art Program was established in 1992 with the adoption of the county’s Art in Public Places Ordinance. The program is funded by one percent of the county's general obligation bonds passed during the general election every two years. The ordinance also created the Arts Board, a 10-member appointed advisory board that recommends artworks for public acquisition and display. Two members per district are appointed by their respective county commissioner.

The intent of the "Art in Bernalillo County Places" ordinance is to promote and encourage public awareness of the arts and cultural properties and to integrate art into Bernalillo County facilities and structures. The program currently has more than 300 works of art, most of which can be viewed via the Public Art Interactive Map link.
