Leaders in Albuquerque’s art community discuss how to keep the arts a vital part of our lives.
Sherri Brueggemann: Manager, Public Art UETF or (Public Art Urban Enhancement Program)
Regina Chavez: UNM Arts Management
Suzanne Sbarge: Executive Director 516 Arts
“It’s really an essential piece of development. If you just have buildings and corporations and government, that would be a boring place; what brings it alive is the arts. I think people are starting to recognize that and take that discussion more seriously.”
The Irish Arts Center
The Irish Arts Center in New York City builds programs that bring artists and community together.
“I think the Irish Arts Center really is a great outlet for contemporary Irish artists, because you end up coming here in the mix with a lot traditional artists. It definitely fosters the arts, there’s no question about it.”
