Marian Berg Recipient Of Local Treasure Award

For the eighth year, the Albuquerque Art Business Association is honoring area artists who not only excel in the arts, but who have given back to their communities. This year we honored eight exceptional artists as Local Treasures. Marian Berg is a multi-media artist who is dedicated to her community. In addition to working as a Registered Nurse and spending time on her own art, she also finds time to help others. She has volunteered at the NM Aids Services and the local Rape Crisis Center. She also volunteered in Haiti after the devastating earthquake of 2010.
