The public art Sculpture Garden at the ABQ Museum is a surreal site. Located in Old Town across from the impressive Tiguex Park, the outdoor garden is a great prelude to the ever-changing museum shows inside the building. Now walk around the garden & notice the sculptures from different angles--it's a whole new experience with each new gaze at the figures. Below are numerous views of The Head, easy to access & prominently displayed in the garden. Read More

You can't miss the massive bald head, with it's attached-lobe ears, pointy chin & sporting a concerned look under furrowed brows. With the Explora Museum nearby & across from the 8+ acre Tiguex Park, the sculpture garden helps create a great greenspace corridor in that part of Old Town. The sculptures make you want to linger there longer.
