Albuquerque’s 516 ARTS brings together organizations representing colleges, high schools, artist collectives, educational organizations and small businesses.
The current exhibit, Heart of the City, is a collaborative project and exhibition that examine intersections of art, urban planning, cultural and economical development, education and community dialogue through a variety of lenses to focus on the urban center and identity of the city.
The New Mexico Architectural Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of the film, “Sign Painters” as part of this exhibition. The film will run March 15-16, 2014, with 1 p.m. screenings both days at the Guild Cinema (purchase tickets at the door). Yes, it’s about people who paint signs.
Heart of the City examines the strengths, weaknesses and needs of the city’s urban core, seeking to articulate and imagine an alternative future for Albuquerque that resonates with optimism and possibility.
The exhibit runs through May 3, 2014. For more information, visit www.516arts.org
