Welcome to Mural Fest 2018 Read More
Mural Fest 2018 is an annual Public Art festival featuring new murals found across the city, mostly in the UrbanABQ east & west neighborhoods. The freshly-painted murals can subtly engulf
small doorways--see the Guild Cinema image--or boldly span the length of an entire block. I found most of them
while the festival ran over the two weeks this fall. Luckily many of the outdoor exhibits will remain for a while; however, some may be gone soon.
See them before the wall owners or the elements change them forever. The artist for each piece was not always readily known, so a full list of the
artists is found here...
This info below is re-printed from an article by KRQE. I am always interested in where & why folks are moving to certain areas of the MetroABQ. Parkland Hills is a great place to move to: numerous pocket greenspaces & established parks, close to all the shopping & restaurants found in Nob Hill; the neighborhood is bounded by San Mateo & Carlisle Blvds on the east & west, & is very centrally located in the city. The housing stock is varied, from large 3000-5000sqft homes, to smaller two-bedroom one bath opportunity residences. The main image above is a Mid-Century Modern home listed in Parkland Hills that is for sale for $575,000. You can see the 3-D Walking Tour here: 600 Montclaire SE. Scroll down to the address...

Now it's easier to find your way...The Nob Hill Visitors Center is a New Year's addition to one of the most walkable areas of the city. Located on Central Ave & Tulane St in the recently remodeled Re/Max Select real estate building (3401 Central Av NE) & next door to Il Vicino pizzeria, the Visitors Center is focused on becoming a useful neighborhood meeting place, & especially helpful for visitors.

Tasty Tuesdays is fantastic! It's an evening summer gathering in Hyder Park--adjacent to Bandelier Elementary School--on Tuesdays of course, generally to eat dinner & listen to music on the grass in the shade of 75 year old trees. One Tasty Tuesday this month seemed to draw probably 750-1000 folks. There was a band, folks dancing in front & others playing frisbee, seven or eight food trucks & food stalls lining the packed roadway, a large group on the hill began in unison their hands to their chests in the Ashtanga Yoga class that began at 6p. Many families with children & other groups spread out across the north-western section of the park facing the musicians. It's a mid-week festival. The organizers of Tasty Tuesdays started in 2012 with one food truck & a dream...& it's grown immensely since. The park is over 4 acres, so plenty of room for all. Read More
