About Atrisco Foundation
A story over 400 years in the making is a story of hardworking, tenacious, yet hopeful people. The first immigrants to what is known today as the United States. A people who viewed their lives and their opportunities as coming from the land they worked; lands that provided shelter and sustenance; and finally the land that represented hope for their children and their community. A small group of colonists organized and created a beginning in the late 1500s that has evolved today, some 400 years later, into a success story for the ages. Today, still organized and operating, the people of the Atrisco Land Grant pursue the hopes of this generation through the Atrisco Companies.

Frederico Vigil has blessed this earth with a number of great works of art that will be around for decades to come. This latest project is another example of that. The support from Atrisco Heritage Foundation and the Atrisco Companies of Federico has always been strong. Atrisco is very appreciative of being included in the latest project by reference to "Atrisco 1598" in the fresco image. The symbolism is significant because of 16th-century Spanish colonialism into the New World which ultimately leads to Spanish Land Grants like Atrisco.
