    BernCo Public Art Announces Call for Photographs for Alvarado Square Art

    8:48 AM

    Note: Bernalillo County @ Alvarado Square is a closed work site. Contact Kent Swanson, Public Art Project Coordinator at kswanson@bernco.gov or 505-314-0467 for more information about the site.


    The Bernalillo County Public Art program is announcing a call for artists to submit photographs for use in the building design of the new county headquarters at Alvarado Square.

    Photographs chosen will help create a welcoming environment for customers, county employees and the public. The photographs will be printed in a large scale and used on the walls of Alvarado Square’s elevator lobbies, and additional photographs may be used on the windows of the new Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office suite.

    The public art program is seeking photographs that represent the story and character of Bernalillo County, including the people, places, landscapes and events of the county.

    Chosen photographers will receive $1,500, with a limit of one photograph per artist. Copies of the winning photographs will also be framed and added to the public art program’s permanent collection.

    The deadline for submissions is Aug. 31, 2020 by mail or email. Complete submission guidelines are available online at bernco.gov/community-services/current-call-for-entries.aspx. There is no fee to submit a proposal.

    Emailed submissions must be received by Aug. 31 (11:59 p.m. Mountain Standard Time) and mailed submissions must be postmarked before Aug. 31. Photographers submitting proposals must reside in New Mexico.

    Alvarado Square is the new headquarters of Bernalillo County and the site of the new Bernalillo County Commission chambers. Alvarado Square will bring many county services into a single location for easier access by residents. The main Alvarado Square tower will be completed February 2021.

    Below are artist renderings of an Alvarado Square elevator lobby and the main building:
