Avokado Artists is a 360° arts organization dedicated to cross-cultural understanding through art and the cultivation, promotion, presentation and preservation of culturally significant artists and their work from around the globe, through our own efforts and in conjunction with partnering like-minded organizations. We strive to bring the works of both artists affiliated with Avokado and other outstanding artists to the attention of the broadest possible audience. The organization was founded in 2004, and was granted 501(c)3 status in 2009. We embrace artistry in the fields of music, visual arts and writing. Avokado's mission is to expose the work of these extraordinary artists to the broadest possible audience through myriad mediums including performance, workshops, presentations, music publishing & licensing, publications, video, photography, printed publications including books, electronic media and various contextual materials as well as opportunities for recordings and distribution.
Avokado Artists is also founder and presenter of ¡Globalquerque! New Mexico's Annual Celebration Of World Music & Culture, which takes place each September at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque, NM. We also curate the annual Festival Eclectica, each year in Angel Fire, NM and are booking consultants for the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival in Bloomington, IN.
