The vision of Art Park 21 (AP21) is for an innovative 21st century art park located in New Mexico. The park will feature eco-art installations that take 21st century views of our relationship with our ecosphere. The inaugural exhibition of the project is “Out of Doors: Acts of Ecology in Albuquerque.” The artworks are located in several different locations within Albuquerque’s Major Public Open Space areas including the Open Space Visitor Center, Los Poblanos Fields, and the Pueblo Montano picnic area. The opening reception for the exhibit is taking place at the beautiful Open Space Visitor Center, a 55 acre facility that is the “hub of art and ecology” in Albuquerque.

With an overarching theme of eco-centrism, the artwork of Art Park 21 includes atmospheric elements such as wind, rain, sunlight, and humidity; plant life; recycled and repurposed elements; and concepts that explore the interface between three dimensional art and architecture. The conceptual bases of several of the works include reference to the fields of engineering, science, and environmental research. “Out of Doors: Acts of Ecology in Albuquerque” artists and artworks include:
