"In celebration of our 10th anniversary, 516 ARTS presents DECADE, a group exhibition and series of off-site projects that draw from the diverse local, national and international artists we have worked with since we opened. This exhibition explores a wide variety of themes and practices that 516 ARTS has explored since its inception including: environmentalism/land-based art, street art, new media art that intersects with science and technology, public art and socially engaged projects. The off-site art projects around the city are presented as points of access to contemporary art that connect back to the exhibition at 516 ARTS in Downtown Albuquerque. By bringing 516 ARTS out to other parts of the city, this exhibition spreads awareness about the urban core and its connectivity to the rest of the city." -516 ARTS

The Fish Rubbing Process

Gyotaku is the Japanese art of making fish prints (ORIGINALLY on delicate rice paper). This artform reproduces the exact features and characteristics of actual, individual fish. In Japanese, "gyo" translates to "fish" and "taku" translates to "stone rubbing" which refers to the technique of fish rubbing. Gyotaku began in Japan or China in the early 1800s as a means to measure and record a commercial fisherman's catch.
