    A new installation by artist Nicola López, Haunted, opened  at the Albuquerque Museum, sort of. The large-scale exhibit of collaged, printed and hand-drawn elements that fills the main wall in the entryway to the museum ironically examines the Southwestern landscape haunted by the inescapable presence of humans. On display until at least May 2021, Haunted will hopefully greet visitors soon and assuredly will have a virtual component available on the museum’s website in the coming weeks. (Clarke Condé)

  • Don’t Call it a Comeback

    The Zoo reopens and the animals are back (not that they went anywhere, you just didn’t get to see them) at the ABQ Biopark starting this Wednesday, Aug. 12 for the general public. Just like the Botanic Gardens, the Zoo has created a unidirectional path for visitors to enjoy seeing the animals, while keeping them and other visitors safe. New baby hyenas and wolves, plus changes to a variety of habitats, greet mask-wearing zoo-goers in this modified arrangement that sadly skips the indoor places like the Penguin Chill exhibit for the time being. You can make timed reservations online and regular admission prices ($8 for New Mexican adults) apply. ABQBiopark Zoo 903 Tenth Street SW, cabq.gov/culturalservices/biopark (Clarke Condé)

  • Wanted: Your Best Photographs

    Shutterbugs gather up your best pieces and pick some to submit for hanging in the new Bernalillo County headquarters when the gov-peeps move to Alvarado Square, happening now until Monday, August 31. The selected photographs will be printed in a large scale and format. They will be used to create a welcoming environment for county customers, county employees and the general public. Some will be used on the windows of the new Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office suite. The photographs should represent the history and character of Bernalillo County and its people, places, landscapes and unique events in our county. There are some big bucks involved as chosen photographers will receive $1,500, with a limit of one photograph per artist. The chosen photos will become part of the public art program’s permanent collection. There is no fee or age limit required to submit. For more information, visit bernco.gov/community-services/current-call-for-entries.aspx. Ends August 31. (Carolyn Carlson)
