The BECA Foundation is an artist + designer run (and thus far, volunteer run) not-for-profit global arts organization benefiting artists, designers and the public now headquartered in Albuquerque, NM, USA. BECA is an acronym for Bridge for Emerging Contemporary Art. The organization's core belief is that "NEW ART + NEW DESIGN FUELS THE BEST OF WHAT'S YET TO COME ON THIS PLANET". Our organization serves as a bridge, facilitator, supporter, enabler and vessel for local, national and international contemporary art + design communities toward the growth and advancement of new ideas and innovation via contemporary art + design. The core program focus is on developing public art exhibition and related opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists + designers. Those opportunities are also extended to established artists + designers who are forging new pathways by exploring new mediums, ideas and processes not previously associated with their work.
