Art project in ABQ South Valley

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Artists and Bernalillo County officials are preparing to hold a series of community meetings aimed at creating a Latino-themed art project for a bridge at the entrance of Albuquerque’s South Valley.

The first meeting is scheduled Feb. 17 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center Education Center.

Officials say the session will focus on gathering stories, history, and photos of the South Valley.

The project seeks to engage South Valley residents to explore the cultural and social identity of the Isleta/Bridge Boulevard entrance using conceptual art renderings of the community’s rich history.

The project is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts “Our Town” grant the county received in July. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
