Lisa's four paintings Bittersweet Journey, Blue Windows, Marigold Skies, and Points of Interest, have been selected as finalists for the New Mexico Art's "Art in Public Places" Purchase Initiative. The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program enriches New Mexico's communities through innovative and diverse public art. Since its inception nearly 25 years ago, the program has placed more than 2,500 works of art in all of New Mexico's 33 counties. The goal of the program is to reflect the diversity of the arts in New Mexico, the Southwest, and the nation while building a dynamic public art collection for the State of New Mexico.
New Mexico Arts (NMA) is the state agency and a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs. The 15-member governor-appointed New Mexico Arts Commission serves as the advisory board. NMA's primary function is to provide financial support to art services and programs to non-profit organizations statewide and to administer the 1% public art program for the State of New Mexico.
