Starting this month and continuing through June, major arts institutions in Albuquerque will be collaborating with local private galleries on an exploration of the art of central New Mexico.   The exhibitions, lectures and performances will focus on contemporary art but also look back to the area's cultural history.   One of the organizers of On the Map, Andrew Connors, Curator of Art at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, talks about how Albuquerque art has always been characterized by an "openness to new technologies."
