EAI artist, Linda Fillhardt, has piece purchased by New Mexico Art in Public Places program.
Linda Fillhardt is thrilled to have one of her encaustic pieces purchased through the New Mexico Art in Public Places program. The piece, Disintegration #3, is now hanging in Santa Fe Fire Station #3.
Over 600 artists submit work each year to the New Mexico Art in Public Spaces program. From that group about 200 are selected and 3 pieces from each artist are placed in a portfolio for that year. When a public entity needs art for their space they select it from the portfolio.
The Santa Fe Fire Department chose this piece from the portfolio for their new fire station. They thought that the piece reminded them of fire and appreciated that fire was used in the encaustic process.
