Arts & Cultural Districts

Arts and cultural districts promote the exceptional art and history of New Mexico while assisting communities in developing their cultural and artistic resources to create dynamic and economically vibrant districts. Immerse yourself in our unique cultural heritage and experience diverse communities from urban downtowns to the valleys in the mountains of Northern New Mexico. Experience traditional art forms steeped in history and passed down through generations of practitioners or jump into the newest expressions in contemporary art. Enjoy authentic locales with experiential offerings in the arts, cultural activities, and experiences in the natural environment.

Arts & Cultural Districts revitalize local economies as they leverage, preserve and celebrate our traditions through cultural institutions and the arts. Engage with local artists, artisans, craftspeople, and cultural entrepreneurs, or visit creative businesses and organizations, that are part of New Mexico’s long tradition of cultural and artistic expression.
