In early 2015, works in Bernalillo County’s collection were part of "All Over the Map: The Ongoing Dialogue of Public Art," a partnership between the City of Albuquerque’s Public Art Urban Enhancement Program and theBernalillo County Public Art Programs.

"All Over the Map" highlighted the past 125 years of public art in the region, as well as ideas about the future of public art in the Albuquerque area.

The exhibition featured the public art projects of more than 125 artists and their public art projects including city, county, state and federally funded works of public art within the region. Also included were poems, short essays, maps, cartoons and other odes to art by local writers and cartoonists such as Hakim Bellamy and John Trevor. A special section of the exhibit included an interactive engagement component that sought public input on what public art should or could be in the future.

"All Over the Map" was part of "On the Map: Unfolding Albuquerque Art and Design," an expansive collaboration celebrating the history and present of Albuquerque art. The Public Art Program and the Albuquerque Museum were just two of "On the Map’s" more than 20 partnering organizations.
