ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND
The mission of the Artesia Arts Council is to enhance the quality of life in Southeast New Mexico through the arts. Artesia is a rural community of 16,000. The opportunities to participate in or to attend live performances are very limited. Activities which result in hands-on artistic expression are rare.

The Artesia Arts Council was founded in 1975 by a group of citizens with a deeply-felt appreciation of the visual and performing arts and the nurturing of the heart and soul which is engendered through encountering such beauty. The result has been an organization which functioned primarily through the volunteers who designed by-laws, took responsibility for finding and providing performances, workshops, and procuring entertainers and artists from outside the area for the enjoyment of the general population.
