Young at art
Santa Fe’s young artists are taking advantage of the opportunities offered in an arts-friendly town. Whether they are still in school or have entered the work force, emerging creative types inject new energy into Santa Fe’s visual and performing arts. Students such as New Mexico School for the Arts’ Asa Benson-Core leave school with the skill sets and talents necessary to continue their pursuits at the college level, while artist Lara Nickel proves that in Santa Fe, dedication to one’s vision pays off.
