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.
