The Albuquerque Arts Board is looking for several artists to be placed “on-call” in the form of a registry of artists available for future woodcarving projects at the Albuquerque BioPark Zoo, including chain saw and traditional woodcarving.

The project intent is to give opportunities to artists working primarily in wood to carve one of several weather damaged trees at the BioPark Zoo. Over the next year when Zoo staff locates suitable trees for carving, the Arts Board Committee will select an artist from this pool to carve the tree(s).

Pre-approved woodcarving artists will be invited to submit a design and a fee proposal for the various trees selected to retain as carvings.

Location: Albuquerque, New Mexico
