CITY OF SANTA FE ARTS AND CULTURE DEPARTMENT SEEKS ARTISTS FOR
URBAN TRAILS PUBLIC ART PROJECT
Project Location: River, Watershed and Trails/Public Works
Six (6) Locations
Project Budget: $25,000 per location
Three (3) to six (6) artists will be selected
Santa Fe has 50 miles of urban bikeways and trails and another 37 proposed miles connecting neighborhoods throughout the City. This project seeks to activate and celebrate the people of Santa Fe and the joy of being outdoors among the city’s rich high desert mountain scenery. Through this project, we intend to define the bikeway network as a place for all people, with a special focus on the residents of our community, both past and present. This is especially relevant now in the midst of the Coronavirus public health crisis, resulting in a national spike of outdoor activities and use of public bikeways.

The committee is interested in artworks in the main lobby/lounge area which will feature an area for performances and/or a game room. Photographs and plans of the area are provided for reference. The committee is looking for an artwork or artworks that promote connectivity and create an authentic sense of place for all users of the space, particularly community youth. Project ideas can engage the walls, ceiling, or other interior spaces. All artistic media are encouraged that support the welcoming environment of the center as a place to gather, mentor, learn, and express interests through multidisciplinary programs and activities. For inspiration, artists are encouraged to explore the activities of the center, the cultural diversity of Santa Fe, NM and the role the arts play in community engagement. Artists are also asked to demonstrate how they would engage community members and local youth in the creation of the artwork. The committee’s goal is to create a sense of place and harness the energy of the center as a fluid, dynamic, and interactive space that fosters innovative programming for users.
