Saturday, November 15th and Sunday, November 16th

The signal that marks the end of summer sounds a little like the blow of many trumpets high in the sky above us. It is the sound of Sandhill Cranes migrating to their wintering grounds in the Middle Rio Grande Valley and beyond. Not just a season for Sandhill cranes, other species of wintering birds can be seen in the Albuquerque area as well. On November 15 & 16, come to the Open Space Visitor Center and take part in FREE programs that honor the winter migratory season during the Return of the Cranes Celebration.

Join us for the opening reception of REFLECT, an art exhibition of the Luna Project. The Luna Project, a collection of women artists, invites you to reflect with them.

The sky reflected in a river’s ripples, one’s face in an angled window or the mirror of a pond: reflection is a conversation between world and image.  Which is real?   We call upon inner reflection, the interplay of self and soul, as we celebrate the world that reflects us.

The exhibit will be in the gallery through December 28th.

Thursday, October 23
3:30pm – 5:30pm
