Commissioner Hart Stebbins Held an Artist's Reception for "Perspectives" on Jan. 12


Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins held an Artist’s Reception for the current District 3 Art Exhibit, New Mexico Perspectives on January 12, 2017.

This show is the 41st in a series of exhibits showcasing the talent and creativity of Bernalillo County artists.

This exhibit features recently acquired pieces from the Bernalillo County Public Art collection and will include work by Kim Arthun, Sondra Diepen, Heidi Pollard and Alan Paine Radebaugh.

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

The exhibit will be on display in the County Manager’s Office Suite  on the 10th Floor of One Civic Plaza NW, Suite 10111 through March.  The public is welcome to stop by and view the art during regular office hours.

For more information, please call 505-468-7108 or email jhartley@bernco.gov.
