New Mexico Arts funds nonprofits and governmental organizations for arts activities in the following discipline areas: performing arts, visual arts, literary arts, media arts, multidisciplinary arts (involving more than one artistic discipline), and interdisciplinary arts (relating two or more artistic disciplines). New Mexico Arts support programs that foster arts education, arts economic development; performing and visual arts, and contemporary and traditional folk arts in New Mexico.

Any organization that receives funding from New Mexico Arts should have a public presentation component during the contract period. Examples of public presentations include exhibitions, publications, screenings, lectures, or performances. All public presentations must be open and accessible to the general public.

  • Economic & Entrepreneurial Development: Economic and Entrepreneurial Development projects and partnerships support the economic development of communities and their artists. Such projects and programs include arts-based cultural tourism activities (such as the support or development of studio art tours), and economic opportunities and training for artists (such as business training and market development).
  • Arts Trails: The Arts Trails Program is an art and economic development initiative designed to put New Mexico artists on the map and bring the market to artisans and enterprises statewide. It seeks to provide visibility for New Mexico artists so that they can be productive as artists and increase the sales of their work while continuing to live in their current communities.
