Tipping Points at Tamarind Institute:  A Collaboration with ABQ Public Art

The City of Albuquerque Public Art Program, Cultural Services Department, the Albuquerque Arts Board, and the renowned Tamarind Institute at UNM announce a call for artists to apply for a public art lithography commission for 2020-2021. 

Inspired by the momentum of the City initiative Tipping Points for Creatives, this project at Tamarind will engage artists who are ready to expand their practice to include collaborative printmaking. For many artists, the opportunity to collaborate with Tamarind’s highly skilled printers yields new thinking about their creative practice and builds new international audiences for their work, essentially tipping local professional artists into the next phase of their career and into new markets.  The opportunity is open to artists currently residing in New Mexico.

                      Deadline to submit:  Monday, February 24th 11:59 PM local time.
