Las Cruces City Art Board Project Mission Statement
Through a fair and open process, the City Art Board and Art Selection Committee are working to select and recommend to the Las Cruces City Council public art to be acquired by the City of Las Cruces. This public art piece will be placed and integrated into the architecture of Las Cruces City Hall.
The City Art Board seeks an artist or artist team to create a site-specific indoor project to be designed for the central pillar in the lobby of Las Cruces City Hall. The commissioned artwork will engage the public and the staff at City Hall and should reflect the architectural setting, the purposes of the building, and the City of Las Cruces. Finalists will be encouraged to submit vibrant and dynamic designs inspired by our local environment, history and cultures. The City Art Board seeks artwork that is large enough in scale and scope to provide a focal point and to create appreciation of the space.
