Temporary Public Art Projects

Temporary art projects funded by the Albuquerque Public Art Program.

The Art in Municipal Places Ordinance was established in 1978 and created the purpose of the Public Art Program and the Arts Board, as well as the funding mechanism for the acquisition of public artworks.

In October 2022, Albuquerque City Council unanimously approved an ordinance change from 1% to 1.5% for art and updated the definition of public art to include temporary and digital media art. With the ordinance change, the Albuquerque Public Art Program is able to fund Temporary and Digital Media Public Art Projects.
