Public Sculptures Along A North Valley Ditch

Leaving the La Luz community & crossing the Rio at the adjacent Montaño Bridge, you soon find yourself at Second Street. There, I always look for the metal sculpture on the northwest corner. Bat Family Cruisin' is a wildly frenetic sculpture that once you see it, you will remember it...

Two other MetroABQ 1% For Arts sculptures dot the landscape heading north, below...


"Nuthatch," created by Tim Mullane, was installed along the North 2nd Street pedestrian corridor in 2019. It's a surprisingly large sculpture when you stand underneath it. More of Tim's work is here.


Perfectly curated & just down the road is "Nest," by John Christensen, also installed in 2019. I love this image, a little bit out of context.

These sculptures are found on North 2nd Street, along the Alameda Drain & Trail.
