One year after Las Cruces approved the Public Art Master Plan and several months dormancy because of COVID, public art is back on the City agenda! The City has hired as a new staff member and the Public Art Board has been reconstituted! Art Board Chair Tina Ballew and Public Art Coordinator Ceci Vasconcellos joined Nan Rubin to bring us up to date. In addition to getting ready to install the new artwork designed for City Hall, the Art Board is preparing to solicit artists for several commissions at city buildings and is launching an initiative to inventory the public art all around Las Cruces.
