Co-founded in 2010 by Julia Mandeville (of Harwood Art Center) and Brendan Picker (of City of Albuquerque Public Art Program), Emerge ABQ-New Mexico's only chapter of the Americans for the Arts' Emerging Leaders network- is a volunteer-based council of emerging artists, arts administrators, and arts supporters. Emerge ABQ has produced three iterations of ShowOff and, last fall, in partnership with Skarsgard Farms, produced the first annual Danger Carnival -- a mirthful night of music, art, activities, food, local brew, and project-oriented fun attended by over 250 people.
"A thriving creative community is essential for any great city, and Emerge ABQ is dedicated to this vital ideal," says Julia Mandeville. "Emerge ABQ's mission is to nurture and keep alight the creative spirit of our community and, in so doing, to make Albuquerque the best place in the universe. Towards this pursuit, we love bringing the community together to show off some of Albuquerque's most amazing talents."
