ArtsThrive is a unique art collecting experience and fundraiser for the Albuquerque Museum.


The participating artists were 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.
