Open Call for Local Artists to Participate in Billboard Art Exhibition

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – A national movement is coming to Albuquerque’s metro to empower local artists.

Imagine seeing your art displayed on one of the many display boards here on the subway. “Save the Art Space” presents its national public art exhibition in Duke City.

New Mexico artist Jodie Herrera will curate the subway billboard exhibit.

“I think we have a lot of amazing creatives here, and I’m really happy to see them prosper and grow,” Herrera said.

Herrera’s own billboard was once featured in Brooklyn when the theme was “stay safe.” This time they are looking for artists to submit work on social justice issues.

“I just want people to have complete creative freedom to express themselves and the issues that are important to them and their community,” Herrera said.

Artists can submit now until September 6, there is a $10 donation per image to submit. The winner’s images will be exhibited at the end of October.
