Brief Description

The Art in Public Places Program of New Mexico Arts and the Local Selection Committee (LSC) for the Victims of Gun Violence Memorial seek an artist or artist team to create an exterior, site-specific commission project to be situated on the northeast corner of the Steve Schiff District Attorney Building property at 520 Lomas NE in Albuquerque, NM. The Second Judicial District Courthouse is directly across 5th Street at 400 Lomas and is visible from the site. The LSC is interested in a non-traditional memorial project that will provide a contemplative, healing, and uplifting space for victims and families dealing with the trauma of gun violence. In addition, the work will be experienced on a daily basis by the District Attorney’s office employees (victims’ advocates, prosecutors, etc.) coming and going from the Steve Schiff building and would serve as a daily reminder of why they do the work they do and for whom they do it.
