The History of ArtsThrive

Formerly Known as Miniatures & More

In 1990, Albuquerque Museum Foundation launched The Miniatures Show, the most successful fundraising event in the history of the Foundation and Albuquerque Museum. Led by the commitment, vision, and devotion of artist and patron Betty Sabo (1928-2016), Miniatures & More enabled collectors to have access to exceptional artists; provided essential funding to the Museum; and support the prolific artist community in Albuquerque and beyond.

In 2017, the event was re-branded as ArtsThrive. The new name and identity spoke to those who are passionate about art, appealed to a broader audience, and communicated the longevity and success of this fundraiser. Today, ArtsThrive continues to be an important part of Albuquerque’s cultural community, supporting Albuquerque Museum and the artists who participate.
