The Many Sides of the ABQ Museum's Sculpture Garden's Big Head

The Many Sides of the ABQ Museum's Sculpture Garden's Big Head
by Chris Lucas

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

I love the ABQ Museum Sculpture Garden's Big Head, that rests prominently in front of the museum's main entrance. 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.

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.  Read More
