Opening reception for “Beautiful Trash” from 2pm-4pm. Meet the artists
Jessica Dunn, Katya Crawford, and Nan Masland. The project is a place-based work that serves to bring attention to the impacts of littering on our public lands.
Opening Reception for “Passages” by Mosaic New Mexico from 2pm-4pm. Artists interpret, depict, and proclaim through their work what the Albuquerque part of our riverine world witnesses and has witnessed over time. To help promote environmental conservation, artists participating in “Passages” were encouraged to use recycled materials in the works.
The “Art Car” will be on display from 10am-4pm in the Visitor Center parking lot.
