District 3 Art Exhibit: Youth Collection

09/12/2017

Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins is proud to announce the installation of a new District 3 art exhibit. The exhibit features recently acquired pieces for the Bernalillo County Youth Collection. This show is the 43rd in a series of exhibits showcasing the talent and creativity of Bernalillo County artists.

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 through December. The public is welcome to stop by and view the art during regular office hours.

Please share this e-mail with your friends, colleagues, neighbors and association members. A RSVP is not necessary.
