County Dedicates New Park and Public Art

03/26/2019

Neighbors in the Skyview area of Corrales have a new park and a piece of public art from a local artist as a centerpiece.

Bernalillo County officials dedicated the park this morning along with art titled “Gambel’s Quail” from local artist Tim Mullane. Mullane is also the dean of Fine Arts at Albuquerque Academy.

The “Gambel’s Quail” art was made possible through the 1% for the Arts. This initiative takes 1 percent of all general obligation bonds and makes those funds available for the purchase of public art.

Skyview Park is located in Commission District 4.

Bernalillo County has done an excellent job of integrating art into the public facilities,” says Bernalillo County Commissioner Lonnie Talbert. “And the county arts board has done a great job selecting art from artists who represent our great state and culture.”

The county currently owns more than 400 pieces of art which can be found throughout county facilities.
