MurosABQ.com was just awarded a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant! We are tickled pink to receive national recognition for our grassroots project. Thanks to the grant from NEA we’ve added piles of new murals for your viewing and touring pleasure. And if you know of one we’ve missed, you can let us know through our Submit page.
In addition, MurosABQ.com is now the outlet to apply for MuraLOVE, an initiative from the City of ABQ Public Arts Program to paint a bevy of new murals on public buildings in our fair city. You can apply at MurosConnect.com.

GraffitiMundo is Spanish for Graffiti World. And clearly, street art has become a worldwide phenomenon. When I took that fateful tour with GrafittiMundo in Argentina last February, I had no idea it would inspire an entirely new focus for Studio Hill Design. Now, after months of building MurosABQ.com, our website directory of Albuquerque’s high quality murals, the adventure continues. This year, my destination was San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. The local group Muros en Blanco has worked with international artists and Mexican government entities to create an entirely new mural scene in SMdA all since 2012, when murals first became legal.
The following images are a few samples of the hundreds of quality murals that can be seen in this beautiful city. (If you’re in the neighborhood, check out the walking tour offered by Muros en Blanco.) Clearly, Albuquerque has room for more great street art!
Here is a promo we put together for our little side project MurosAbq.
MurosABQ is Albuquerque’s Mural Directory.
A special thank you goes out to Maddox & Co. and Garcia Automotive Group who stepped up to help fund the ambitious effort to get MurosABQ.com started. Information and support for the website were provided by Downtown Albuquerque Arts & Cultural District, City of Albuquerque Public Art, 516 ARTS, Warehouse 508, Working Classroom, and “a biz by bre.”
…and we’ve only just begun.
Today, Studio Hill Design is supporting some deserving, less fortunate, fur covered friends. We’ll be delivering lunch and a donation to the hard working volunteers and staff at the Valencia County Animal Shelter. The VCAS has limited resources, yet takes in a stunning amount of homeless animals and does their best to make them comfortable and find them “furever“ homes. Thanks for all you do,VCAS.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL FROM STUDIO HILL.
