Downtown Studio

The CFA Downtown Studio is an exhibition and event space that provides a professional public platform for students within the College of Fine Arts

In addition to being a unique off-campus site to showcase current student art, the CFA Downtown Studio frequently works with emerging local artists, collectives, curators, art historians and musicians on special exhibitions, artist lectures, music concerts and experimental sound performances.

As part of the CFA Downtowns Studio’s commitment to fully participate in and with the downtown and greater Albuquerque community, a high school outreach effort has also been established to invite students to artist talks, exhibition tours and workshops.

UNM College of Fine Arts Dean Kymberly Pinder and several faculty members worked collaboratively with leaders from City of Albuquerque to create the CFA Downtown Studio. The City of Albuquerque is the owner of the space and is generously leasing it under agreement. Graduate Student Lara Goldmann works as its director to program and coordinate exhibits and activities.
