Brief Description

The Bernalillo County Arts Board solicits a call for artists for the Alvarado Square Chambers Mural, an indoor, site specific mural project for Bernalillo County @ Alvarado Square, the new home for Bernalillo County government offices. The Alvarado Square Chambers Mural will be located inside the building on the south-facing wall outside of the County Commission Chambers. The mural will be visible to the public both from inside the building and outside from Silver Avenue through glass windows. Additionally, the design and imagery for the mural will be used in the creation of an acrylic/glass art element to be placed on top of the casework behind the building’s concierge desk and form a screen for the building’s glass elevators. The established budget for this project is $50,000. The winning artist or team will create the concept and design of the mural, engage in community outreach, and implement installation. The mural will be culturally relevant and represent Bernalillo County.
