The MetroABQ has a great supply of art & artists. They can be found in the galleries, of course, often regulated during monthly ARTScrawl & First Friday art events. However, some of the best art can be found outside, as geometric fractals created by school-age children, & especially large-scale building-length mural projects, which have proliferated beautifully in our city lately, like this one on the edge of Uptown.
Two places that are bringing great focus to this en plein air expression is the Muros ABQ website & Mural Fest, in its third year. MurosABQ.com has a fantastic interactive map that tells you who created the art & exactly where to find them.
A large number of street art projects can be found along the Mother Road/Central Ave corridor in the neighborhoods surrounding Downtown, EDo (East Downtown), & the Nob Hill Neighborhoods. The art installations are so numerous that you can plan a whole day touring mural art & never need to get into a car.
