The Los Alamos Art in Public Places Board is accepting applications for one vacancy on its board. 

The next 24 months will be an exciting time as the Art in Public Places Board finalizes installation of several public art pieces and begins the search for new projects. Implementation of public art pieces have begun at the Los Alamos County Golf Course, on Solar Tree, a self-powered sculpture at the Los Alamos County Municipal Building, and a six-piece sculptural pot collection along N.M. 4 in White Rock. 

Board activities will include organizing calls for art and artists, collecting community input, playing a role in the community survey process, collaborating with other board members, and contributing creative ideas for future Art in Public Places projects.

The Art in Public Places Board meets at 5:30 p.m., the fourth Thursday of each month, and is a fun and collaborative team that has a history of successfully bringing public art to Los Alamos. 

Some recently completed APPB projects include installation of Flying Folds and Crane Unfolded at the White Rock Branch Library, and re-location and re-dedication of Strange Trio at Overlook Park.
