A Brief History of the Organization

Initially founded in 1988, the Northwest New Mexico Arts Council was reorganized in 1996. Its mission at that time was expanded to include all of the arts. Board membership was sought to represent this expanded vision and community networking was initiated. At this time the Council is a 501(c)3 organization in good standing with a membership of about 120. It has carried out many arts related activities over the past few years to establish its presence and strengthen the arts in the community. By coordinating resources and expanding opportunity for a number of participating art organizations, the Northwest New Mexico Arts Council is providing a valuable service for this region of New Mexico.
