Proud to Join City of ABQ's Arts Board
I'm incredibly honored to have been appointed to the City of Albuquerque's Arts Board last week, and to celebrate the remarkable history of this public art program in the US! As the 100th person to ever accept this role of public service, I'll join 10 other Burquenos in advising Mayor Tim Keller and the City Council on public art acquisitions and programmatic funding.
ABQ was founded -- amazingly -- in 1706, so it's no surprise we have one of the oldest public art programs in the country. I adore that! It might surprise you though that our city has one of the largest departments of Cultural Services in the US. Pretty phenomenal for a mid-sized metropolis.

You were once a huge fan, but now you already have the position! I am so happy that you became part of last week's City of Albuquerque's Arts Board! I am sure that you somehow did not see it coming; but God has his ways of surprising you. Perhaps, He thought that it would be best to surprise you on such way! I am sure that hyuour heart is filled with so much happiness right now. If it happened to me, I would definitely feel the same thing.
