Snapshots from Weekly Alibi’s PRIDE Photobooth
By Blythe Crawford [ Fri Jun 17 2016 12:27 PM ]
On Saturday, July 11, a team of Alibi staffers joined forces to host a photobooth and raffle at Albuquerque PRIDE! We were able to raise over $150 for the Transgender Resource Center of New Mexico thanks to the generous donations of festival-goers, many of whom are featured in these pictures. It was a day full of rainbows, glitter, giant man-sized butterflies and the shared purpose of supporting everyone to be exactly who they are. Many thanks to everyone who stopped by. See you next year!

Operation Art Box returns!
By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Sep 28 2012 9:00 AM ]
It’s like Christmas around here when the revamped distribution cubes start making their way back to our office. The project, conceived by Circulation Manager Geoffrey Plant, asks local artists to overhaul those blue cubes that house the Alibi each week. Plant delivers the boxes to the artists, and then, a month later, picks them all back up. The staff here gets all excited as the cubes roll back into our offices.
Truly, the artists’ good work is fuel for us. You know how creativity is.
Plant penned a feature this week on all of the participants. Their nonbox artwork is also still being displayed at Boro Gallery (317 Gold SW) through the end of the month.
