ArtSpark is incredibly excited to introduce the 2010 ArtSpark Artists. This amazing group of individual artists and arts organizations in Albuquerque are collaborating with ArtSpark and each other to experiment with social media, mechanisms for microfunding/crowdfunding projects, and on-the-ground strategies to engage their public (like inviting fans to rehearsals or a pre-event party). ArtSpark will feature their projects and process on upcoming blog posts, so stay tuned. Without further ado… (drumroll please!) here they are:
