LENDING ARTISTS A HELPING HAND
The Santa Fe Artists’ Medical Fund was founded in 1996 by artist Armond Lara and a group of individuals concerned about the problems faced by professional artists lacking medical insurance. Since its inception, the Santa Fe Artists Medical Fund has assisted many artists during times of medical needs through grants administered by the Santa Fe Community Foundation.
Despite changes to health care laws our fund remains pertinent to the Santa Fe community by helping artists meet their healthcare needs by paying hospitals, doctors and other medical expenses.

“This organization grew out of the awareness that artists are a vital part of the economic state of New Mexico…” —ARMOND LARA
