Our Story

How it All Started

The OT Circus is a New Mexico based non-profit. We focus on using various therapeutic methods, and creativity, to build community, and to bring people of all abilities together. We do this through various programs including pop up art shows, community outreach, and our monthly artist markets, with local makers, crafters, and community organizations.

OT Circus Gallery is honored to work with a wide range of artists, incl. Indigenous artists, creatives living/working with a disability, and makers and crafters of all kinds. We welcome everyone and anyone to join us as a guest, and as an artist/maker to show and sell their work!

OT Circus Covid Safety Practices

For in person events, we are only allowing 7-9 guests in at a time.
Staff does a weekly deep cleaning prior to the event. During the event, staff is wiping down surfaces with sanitizer/disinfectant.
We have hand sanitizer and gloves available in the gallery.
Everyone is required of course, to wear a face mask/covering properly.

DONATE NOW

Help Us Help The Community

We are seeking to improve the quality of life of those with disabilities and in under served communities by giving the opportunity and supplies for them to create artwork for profit.
