BernCo Open Space Seeks Artists for 20th Celebration Event

06/28/2018

The Bernalillo County Arts Board is looking for artists to create up to three art installations at Bachechi Open Space for the 20th anniversary celebration event of Bernalillo County Open Space on Sept. 28, 2018.

Artists must submit proposals by July 20 to be considered. Artists in all stages of their careers are encouraged to apply, but must reside in Bernalillo County. Finalists will be announced on Aug. 1.

All submissions must be sent to Nan Masland, public arts project coordinator, at namasland@bernco.gov.

Each artist will receive $500 to cover materials and other costs. Please see the complete call for entries for details and submission instructions at bernco.gov/community-services/call-for-entries.aspx/.

Bachechi Open Space features a range of possible sites that provide inspiration. It is 27 acres of fertile valley farmland in the North Valley, adjacent to the Rio Grande bosque. Bernalillo County purchased Bachechi in 1999. Bachechi was formerly known as Sullivan’s Stables, a commercial equestrian operation since the mid-1970s.

For questions about this call, contact Nan Masland at namasland@bernco.gov or (505) 314-0467.
