Downtown murals for STREET ARTS

Launched Fall 2010

In the fall of 2010, 516 ARTS presented a series of new Downtown murals on and near Central Avenue for STREET ARTS: A Celebration of Hip Hop Culture & Free Expression. Presented in partnership with the Downtown Action Team, Albuquerque MainStreet and Downtown businesses, the new murals featured local and international artists whose work was also part of the exhibition Street Text: The Populist Phenomenon at 516 ARTS (October 2 - December 11, 2010). 

Although some of the artists used impermanent materials to create their murals and are no longer present, some of the murals created for this project are still on view today:
