The Albuquerque Museum Foundation is proud to announce the new name of its largest annual fundraiser for the Albuquerque Museum! This October, Miniatures & More becomes ArtsThrive: Art Exhibition & Benefit.

The 27th Annual ArtsThrive: Art Exhibition & Benefit is a 6-week invitational exhibition held at the Albuquerque Museum October 20 – December 3, 2017. Proceeds from art sales and sponsorships provide valuable funding for the Museum’s educational programs for children and families, Museum exhibition support, and acquisitions. Over 100 participating artists also receive a percentage of their art sales, while gaining exceptional exposure to art collectors, gallery owners, and art lovers alike.
