SANTA FE, NM.- The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation announces the opening of a new 3,500 square-foot space for experiencing contemporary art in the Santa Fe Railyard District. Art Vault is dedicated to sharing the Foundation’s world-class collection of digital, electronic, virtual, and new media artworks, curated in thematic exhibitions.

Art Vault at 540 South Guadalupe Street is the only digital art collection open to the public in the Southwest, and one of very few in the United States. Artworks from the Thoma Foundation collection are on view year-round, rotating seasonally. There is no admission fee, and school and group tours are available by appointment.

Featured exhibitions will include emerging and mid-career artists alongside internationally renowned pioneers of video sculpture, self-taught computer artists, and influential digital time-based media artists. Large-scale digital and video installations invite viewers to broaden their understanding of technology with innovative perspectives on the human experience.

Art Vault will take the place of The Thoma Foundation’s Art House, at 231 Delgado Street in Santa Fe, which will transition to the Foundation’s main office location.

Founder Carl Thoma’s vision to bring larger, more accessible works of digital and media art to the international art hub of Santa Fe has been realized. “We are thrilled to increase our cultural contribution to the vibrant visual arts scene in Santa Fe. With Art House, we established the foremost digital art exhibition space in the Southwestern United States, and now we’ve transitioned into a building with three times the exhibition space in the Railyard Arts District, the center of Santa Fe’s contemporary art scene.”
