VITAL SPACES is a Santa Fe-based 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to sustain and enhance Santa Fe’s cultural vibrancy by creating affordable spaces for artists working in all media to create, present, connect, and teach. Our focus is on fostering a collaborative creative community and supporting people, ideas, and art forms that are underrepresented in Santa Fe’s commercial art scene.
ANNOUNCING: WINDOWS ON THE FUTURE
We, along with our partners at The Paseo Project and 516 ARTS, are thrilled to announce the opening of Windows on the Future,on view through the month of July.
The selected artists worked in modes extending from the realistic to the fantastic, in materials ranging from ceramics to photography to live plants to dead moths, as they each took on the challenge of visually exploring the future from our uncertain present. The collaborative effort brings vibrancy and vitality to central and northern New Mexico’s commercial districts through window art installations while still encouraging social distancing.
We invite you to walk and drive by to see these scenes from the sidewalk and street. Storefronts include operating retail stores, empty office buildings, public libraries, galleries, a theater marquee sign, a wine bar, and hotels, among others.
