Downtown Arts & Cultural District

I’ve said it before. Albuquerque is a fantastic city for artists and other creatives. There are many initiatives, both public and private, focused on growing Albuquerque’s creative economy.

The goals of the Cultural District are:

  • Supporting and promoting existing creative work
  • Growing a strong creative identity, internally and externally
  • Unlocking unused or underutilized space
  • Increasing access to shared knowledge
  • Stimulating a range of funding opportunities
  • Increasing visitor’s to the district

Here are some initiatives and resources offered through or in collaboration with  the Cultural District:

Author: Vicki Bolen, Little Bird de Papel

I am a paper artist living and creating in Albuquerque, NM. Working with paper to create art gives me an appreciation for the beauty and cultural significance of this versatile material. I began by folding origami cranes, and over the years my work has evolved to include handmade greeting cards, book making, boxes and mono prints. Each piece gives me the opportunity to create something useful while expressing myself artistically. I attend numerous art and crafts festivals throughout the country because my intent is to share the joy I experience in making art. My artwork is also available through my Etsy and Redbubble shops.
