The exhibit includes fourteen concepts by twelve artists or teams that illustrate a proposed outdoor artwork installation that is consistent with the Art Park 21 theme.
The Albuquerque main library is currently hosting the exhibit: Art Park 21: Groundwork. This exhibit was organized by AP21 co-organizers John Davis and Siobhan Roome. The goal of the Art Park 21 team is the establishment of a 21st century art park in the vicinity of Albuquerque or Santa Fe, NM. The Art Park 21 team also includes arts professionals from the area who share this vision for a venue for eco-centric artworks. The current exhibit includes fourteen concepts by twelve artists or teams that illustrate a proposed outdoor artwork installation that is consistent with the Art Park 21 theme.
A key element in the groundwork for establishing this park will be a temporary exhibit of multiple outdoor installations that fit the theme of the park. The park will feature eco-centric installations that take 21st century views of what could be possible in an art park, and of our relationship with our environment. Installations that represent a product of collaboration between one or more artists/artisans and an engineer/scientist/researcher/technician would be welcome, as well as artworks that make use of new knowledge, materials, techniques or technology and that place a value on sustainability. Themes include: atmospheric elements such as wind, rain, sunlight, humidity; artworks that incorporate plant life, recycled or repurposed elements; artworks that generate electricity; interactive artworks; artworks that explore the interface between three dimensional art and architecture. Our website: artpark21.org will have the latest information on this effort and social media will be used to spread the word and broaden support. We are hoping to have several of these proposed installations temporarily sited on open space lands in the Albuquerque area and are working to make this happen.
With a long term goal of establishing a sustained venue for the exhibit of outdoor eco-centric art, this exhibit is one step in broadening that conversation with our community.
