The Metro has an extensive public art collection, represented in all quadrants & in some out-of-the-way places. When I know I will have extra time in an area of the city, I check the city's Interactive Public Art Map & seek out interesting public art.

Very functional public art: below is a wavy handrail across a not-easy-to-find arroyo bridge, north of Paseo del Norte at Washington St. Kids were skateboarding the concrete arroyo inclines--with the Washington Bridge Design as the western edge of their skatepark.


 

Washington Bridge Design, by artist Kevin Christman, described by the MetroABQ Public Art Map page, is a "pedestrian bridge railing in a whimsical style with a geometric design mimicking waves & the flow of water."
