Public Opening: Miniatures & More 2014
Now in its 24th year, Miniatures & More is an exhibition fundraiser that provides valuable funding to the Museum while benefiting the artists whose work it features. The only selling exhibition at the Albuquerque Museum, Miniatures was created by – and is a program of – the Albuquerque Museum Foundation.
A range of artists producing traditional and contemporary paintings, photographs and sculptures are selected each year through a juried process in order to provide an exceptional collection for consideration. The “& More” was added to the 2007 Miniatures exhibition. Miniatures & More also features a few selected large-scale works.
