Brief Description

The Art Selection Committee seeks a prominent Work of Art that will address the need to link the unique natural grandeur of our region with the growing urban environment surrounding the site. As an innovative solution to an urban, planned community, the Sawmill neighborhood is and will continue to grow as a destination for residents and visitors to the metropolitan area. The Art Selection Committee desires a project that addresses multiple levels of the site, the missions of the Sawmill Community Land Trust and the New Mexico Water Collaborative, and their prominence in this pivotal location. Adornment and embellishment are not priorities of this project, but rather we seek an intriguing fusion of purposes that mirror the neighborhood, city, and region, and responds to the arid high desert environment and the role water plays in this ecosystem.
