VISITING ARTIST TALK: Aaron Noble


AARON NOBLE: Visiting Artist Talk

presented at CNM, Smith Brasher Hall, Room 100
717 University SE (near Coal and University)

516 ARTS, Warehouse 508, The City of Albuquerque Public Art Program and CNM welcome visiting artist Aaron Noble to our community for Heart of the City.  He will give a free, public talk at CNM on Tuesday, January 28 at 6pm, where he will present about his work, process and unique vision for Quantum Bridge, the monumental, new mural on Warehouse 518 and 4th Chamber, the portable mural in the Heart of the City exhibition at 516 ARTS, both of which are created with youth apprentices from Warehouse 518.  Everyone is invited to this special pre-exhibition event with the artist, to be introduced by fellow mural artist and CNM professor of Art Larry Bob Phillips.

Aaron Noble is nationally and internationally respected, known for both his mural projects and his fine art, which is a synthesis of three distinct practices: comics, collage, and muralism.  In addition to his large-scale achievements across the world, Noble is the co-founder of the Clarion Alley Mural Project (CAMP) formed in 1992 to create and facilitate opportunities for artists in San Francisco.

Quantum Bridge is located on the Warehouse 508 building at 1st St. and Roma Ave. NM, visible from the bridge into Downtown on Martin Luther King Blvd. and from the Rail Runner and Amtrak trains.  Warehouse 508 is Albuquerque's biggest youth art and entertainment center.  They offer a safe, structured and supervised facility to young adults and youth, and provide an array of youth driven programs.

The residency with Aaron Noble to create 4th Chamber is made possible in part through support to 516 ARTS from the National Performance Network's Visual Artists Network. Major contributors are the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Joan Mitchell Foundation, the Ford Foundation and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
