CloudTop Comedy Festival--Stage Design

CloudTop Comedy Festival is commissioning an artist to design its stage/s for the spring 2024 festival. This special project is underwritten by a grant from the City of Santa Fe’s Arts and Culture Department. In 2022, CloudTop’s mainstage featured a backdrop of puffy clouds made from pillow stuffing. For 2024, the festival is dreaming bigger. Whether its clouds made from neon, wire, or acrylic - perhaps a whole skyscape - we want to offer audiences a stage befitting of the City Different. This project awards $4,000 for the selected artist, inclusive of materials.

The winning artist will be selected by committee. Favor will be given to designs that are visually striking, easy to install/remove, lightweight, and reflect CloudTop’s brand. We encourage all to apply, but especially New Mexico artists, or those with strong ties to New Mexico.

Please complete the below application and submit your $10 application fee. Applications are open November 1 through February 15.

The winning artist will be announced in late-February. The festival takes place on May 9-12.

MoCNA’s Social Engagement Art Residency (SEAR) of 2024 is funded by the Mellon Foundation. This partnership offers us the flexibility to mold a program based on Native artist social engagement and impact that meet the objectives of the Mellon Foundation while supporting MoCNA’s goals in terms of activating contemporary Native artist leadership, capacity, and community building.

Artists will have the chance to work together or brainstorm their own separate projects, working with their chosen local community or within the Santa Fe regional area. Examples of communities to work with would include advocacy groups and/or Indigenous communities addressing current social and political issues. Art works could cover various media and a wide range of project methods that engage the community or a specific facet of the community, strategically producing both artful and social outcomes. Artists are invited to give a talk about their work at the end of their residency at MoCNA as a public program and the IAIA (Institute of American Indian Arts) community.


Applications are open to either spring or summer residencies and will remain open until filled by the following deadlines at midnight Mountain Standard Time:

I-25 GIbson Interchange Reconstruction Project - Aesthetic Treatment

The New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is seeking an artist or artist team to advise and provide specific recommendations to the design team on the aesthetic treatment of the I-25 Gibson Interchange Reconstruction project in Albuquerque, NM.  

NMDOT is planning transportation improvements to I-25 at the Gibson Boulevard interchange and between Sunport Boulevard and Avenida Cesar Chavez. 

The project will include:  

  • A new I-25 bridge over Gibson Boulevard, including a new interchange design.

  • Minor enhancements to Gibson Boulevard between Edith Boulevard and University Boulevard.

  • Additional lanes and frontage road improvements along I-25 between Sunport Boulevard and Avenida Cesar Chavez.

  • Improvements to bicycle and pedestrian facilities.

The improvements will enhance safety and improve efficiency for all modes of transportation, including drivers, cyclists, and pedestrians while providing an aesthetic experience for the estimated 102,000 trips by the traveling public that pass through the area on a daily basis.  

Surfaces to be addressed may include bridge parapets, abutments, railings, project retaining walls, and pedestrian fencing as defined by the design team. Treatments may be expressed through color, texture, and unique repeating concrete form liners for vertical surfaces and metallic shapes for fencing. Treatments will address the cultural and natural resource qualities of this part of Albuquerque, and comprise a holistic aesthetic ‘look’ for the interchange without providing a distraction to the traveling public.  

Interested parties must apply and be prepared to demonstrate aesthetic ability, ability to work as part of a team, and ability to work within time and monetary budgets.  

The selected artist will be compensated as an independent contractor by the consulting engineering firm (Horrocks), $10,000 for the draft alternatives for presentation to the public and $12,000 for the final design. The selected artist will work with Horrocks' team to develop an aesthetic package for the Design-Build contract and will assist in the development of minimum aesthetics guidelines for the Design-Builder to follow. The money will be paid as part of a contract to develop the artwork and guide the Horrocks team on the package.

Deadline March 11
