516 ARTS Programs

516 ARTS is a unique art space located in the center of Downtown Albuquerque. This is the place where you may find local, national, and international artists' pieces of work. The art here is inspirational, full of life, and innovative.

The exhibitions have a topic, and they are organized alongside with museums' projects, discussions, talks, or workshops. Some exhibitions have even pieces of work for sale arranged in tandem with the partners. The full list of 516 ARTS' partners is presented on our website.

516 started Fulcrum Fund together with the Regional Regranting Program of the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts in 2006. This fund allows original artists to receive the grant for their work.

516 ARTS' exhibitions.

Our events' purpose is to gather under the same roof artists from the USA as well as from other countries. The idea is to make a connection between various communities and between people with different visions from around the world.

Cross Pollination

Cross Pollination exhibition started on August 19th, and it will last until November 11th. The event focuses on science and art – bees and pollinators through artists' view. Artists aim to raise society's awareness on pollinator's good influence on our life.

The exhibition includes not just pictures, but photos, sculptures, video, and performance, too.

Besides talks, discussions, debates, or forums, our guests can attend the bee market pop-up shop. Our visitors can purchase T-shirts, honey, bee houses, photos, painting, and many others.

The US-Mexico Border: place, imagination, and possibility

The exhibition will take place from January 27th to April 14th, 2018. Under the current political situation, border's idea as a transition place is more appropriate than ever. “Building of a wall” inspired many artists, and the event will allow them to express their thoughts.

At first, the exhibition will be presented in Los Angeles, and then it will travel to Albuquerque at 516 ARTS. Lowery Stokes Sims is responsible for the event's organization.

If you are in love with art, here is a once in a lifetime chance to visit these two exhibitions. 516 ARTS is where you will recharge your batteries for a whole year ahead with inspiration, originality, art, amazing people, and great talks.
