The Bernalillo County Arts Board is seeking qualified artists and artist teams interested in creating public art for the Tiny Home Village, now under construction in southeast Albuquerque.

Artists residing in New Mexico are invited to apply and must demonstrate: an understanding of Bernalillo County; sensitivity towards the population of the Tiny Home Village and the surrounding community; and experience with community engagement.

The Tiny Home Village will provide a holistic housing intervention for people experiencing homelessness, prioritizing safe and dignified housing within a supported single-site community setting.

The Tiny Home Village is a collaborative project between Bernalillo County, the Albuquerque Indian Center and the City of Albuquerque and is located on the property of the Albuquerque Indian Center, 105 Texas St. SE.

The artwork will be located in the visitor parking area of the facility. Artists are encouraged to include a community outreach process in the design and implementation of the art. The established budget is $43,000. The project will be participatory and will engage the surrounding community and village residents.
