A true artiste can't be dampened by dumpsters and alley rats. The show goes on behind the shops on Central in Nob Hill.

There are lots of great alley murals in the Nob Hill/UNM area...walking down the alley bordering the Central strip to the south would be a great place to start.

ABQ seems like the only place where murals are so abundant. Great fun to find them. D

Oh this is a great page! I am the ARTScrawl Coordinator for Albuquerque and a recent (yet unsuccessful FB post) was for members to go to our page and upload pictures of local murals, and other great street art. Is there an opportunity to contribute to this blog? I have a few favorites myself here in downtown!

Cheers,

Erica Jones

Hi Erica, I've been putting up an ABQ pic a day, not all murals though. I'll check out your FB page.   I put my pics up on FB too. Thanks

Doogie, 29 Palms may have murals but they don't have all the rest...

Nice alleyway photo. I didn't see it until today. It reminds me of the federal depression project (Farm Security Administration) prior to WWII where photogs were sent out to document America at its nadir. A new years ago they put out a book, Bound for Glory, which consisted of the first Kodacrome pics. If you haven't seen it, I recommend you take a look. It has more pictures of New Mexico than any other state, I believe, including several on Pie Town, including the dust cover.

Thanks Ben, I'll look for that book. Her style looks like WWII murals on planes to me. Bound For Glory was also the title of the Woody Gurthie bio movie way back. D
