ArtsThrive: Art Exhibition & Benefit is a 7-week invitational exhibition hosted by the Albuquerque Museum Foundation and held at the Albuquerque Museum.


ArtsThrive is a unique art collecting experience and fundraiser to the Albuquerque Museum. The participating 124 artists were carefully selected through a jury process, providing a broad assortment of works, many of which were created here in New Mexico from across the nation. The artists receive 60 percent of the proceeds. The remaining 40 percent provides valuable funding for Albuquerque Museum’s educational programs for children and families, and Museum exhibition support. ArtsThrive offers a platform for collectors, art lovers, and artists alike.
