Celebrate Women in Creativity while Touring Some Amazing Art!

valley girls
The Albuquerque and Bernalillo County Public Art Programs are co-hosting a special event celebrating numerous contributions of women artists. On Sunday, March 11th, take a self-guided tour of over a dozen public artworks in the Valley created by women. Volunteers, and in some cases the artists themselves, will be stationed at various artworks from 1-4pm to answer any questions and talk about the artworks. Download the map and tour guide and join us on Sunday, 3/10, as we celebrate women in creativity!
