Out with the Old
While Albuquerque is certainly noted for having interesting graffiti and murals, a good deal of them are old and peeling, if not tagged over with someone else's mark. Fortunately, the students at Washington Middle School (1101 Park SW), with help from Nani Chacon and Working Classroom, have taken on the task of revitalizing one of our crumbling pieces of public art. The newly titled “Resilience” will become Albuquerque's largest mural. On Friday, Sept.18, the school will throw a Dedication Party & Film Screening to celebrate the completion of phase one of their brilliant project. This free shin-dig will have music, food trucks galore and a screening of the mural documentary. The all-ages festivities start at 6pm on the running track. (Courtney Foster)
