During the Opening Weekend Collectors’ Dinner and Saturday Gala on October 17 & 19, ticket holders have an exclusive opportunity to purchase artworks before the exhibition opens to the public. Beginning October 28, art sales will open to the public through an online ArtsThrive shopping cart.

  • ONLINE ART SALES: Any remaining artwork not sold during the Opening Weekend events of ArtsThrive will be available to purchase through an online shopping cart. It will be required that the Artist provide high-quality images of their artwork 2 weeks prior to the delivery of their artwork to the ArtsThrive gallery. The artwork must be a professional, in-focus representation for publication image provided as a .JPEG no less than 72dpi to ensure the best representation of the art online. The Museum Foundation reserves the right to reject any images that do not meet these requirements. Artists who do not provide images risk the opportunity of online art sales as there is no guarantee their work will be displayed online unless this deadline has been met. All artwork will also be available for purchase through the Albuquerque Museum Store.


Artwork must be delivered ready-to-install and completely dry. Wall pieces need not be framed, but must be equipped with D-rings as hanging devices. The Albuquerque Museum Foundation and/or the Albuquerque Museum reserve the right to modify hanging devices if necessary. Artwork that has arrived at the Museum but is not in satisfactory display condition or does not meet the size limitations may be excluded from the ArtsThrive exhibition and returned to the Artist.


All shipping costs are the responsibility of the Artist. Artwork must be shipped in a reusable crate or commercial shipping container. Please do not use Styrofoam peanuts as packing material. Unsold artwork will be repacked and returned to the Artist in the same shipping container as received.

Damaged artwork will not be displayed. Damaged shipping containers or materials will not be reused.

30 days after the exhibition closes, all artwork unclaimed by the Artist will be considered abandoned and will no longer be the responsibility of the Albuquerque Museum Foundation or the Albuquerque Museum.
