ArtsThrive: Art Exhibition & Benefit is an invitational exhibition hosted by the Albuquerque Museum Foundation and held at the Albuquerque Museum.
ArtsThrive is a unique art collecting experience and fundraiser for the Albuquerque Museum. Participating artists are selected through a juried review process. Collectors will see a broad assortment of works of art, many of which were created here in New Mexico—and from across the nation. The artists receive 60 percent of the proceeds. The remaining 40 percent provides funding for Albuquerque Museum’s educational programs for children and families, and Museum exhibition support. ArtsThrive offers a platform for collectors, art lovers, and artists alike.
