This Saturday, 516 ARTS marks the beginning of its second decade with an opening featuring new work chosen from the 1000+ artists shown over the past 10 years in Albuquerque’s downtown contemporary arts space. I visited this week to take a look at the process of installing 516’s 10th anniversary exhibit DECADE, and the artists and staff that make it possible.
