About ALMA

ALMA (Apprenticeships for Leaders in Mosaic Arts) was founded in spring 2015 by the leadership team of the Mayor’s Art Institute. ALMA is the new administrator for The Mayor’s Art Institute (administered by the City of Albuquerque from 1999-2005 and the Harwood Art Center from 2006- 2015). ALMA provides mentorship and training to youth through our apprenticeship model, creates world-class handmade tile mosaic artworks, and provides opportunities for the community to engage with the mosaic process.
