Near the Explora! Ideas You Can Touch Science Center & across the street from Tiguex Park, The ABQ Museum's sculpture garden is amazing. You can get lost in the grandeur of the exhibits that act as sentries in front of the main entrance. Inside, the Slate At The Museum Cafe is a sweet place to relax for lunch. These are part of the ABQ Museum, & are not be part of the city arts program One Percent For Art. Read More

The busy I-25 commercial corridor north of Candelaria Rd along the frontage road is a busy thoroughfare. where you will find the mural above, recently installed for Mural Fest '18. It covers the length of a formerly blank concrete block wall outside the Positive Energy Solar headquarters. It was still being completed when I stopped by, apparently they were away having lunch. It's a pretty cacophonous piece, flanked on each side by what looks like a heartbeat. 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...
