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!
On Sunday evening, the city’s first official mural trolley tour took to the streets. In spite of Albuquerque’s first cold snap of the season, a jolly band of locals and tourists boarded the open air deck on one of Albuquerque Trolley Co.’s newset and most exciting services.
Concepted by Studio HIll Design, Mural Fest and Albuquerque Trolley Co., the tour featured at least 50 murals painted throughout the Downtown and Nob Hill areas. Most of those murals can also be seen by visiting MurosABQ.com, Albuquerque’s first and best online mural directory.
View the video from news station KRQE above for the full scoop.
MurosABQ.com (developed by Studio Hill Design) is excited to partner with ABQ Trolley Co. to present the first ever Mural Tour. The narrated tour will feature 50+ murals and public artworks along the downtown, EDo, Barelas, South Broadway and Nob Hill corridors. Be sure to bring a camera!
WHEN IS IT? Sunday, October 14th 4:30 PM – 6:00 PM Departs from Hyatt Regency downtown
Word gets around. Check out this nice little feature on MurosAbq.com from our friends down south. It seems even our neighbors appreciate the unique resource that our local artists provide in Albuquerque. Could a MurosRuidoso be on the horizon?
“Albuquerque is an art-filled city, and street art is such an authentic reflection of our heart, soul and people. These pieces deserve our attention.”
Great news! After more than 200 hours of hard work, Studio Hill Design is proud to launch http://www.MurosABQ.com/ … the first and only directory of Albuquerque’s murals. Help us spread the word through email and social media. We want everyone to have access to this inspiring resource!

“Be Responsive” doesn’t mean replying when you are spoken to. It refers to the ability of your website to scale up or down, depending on the viewer’s monitor size. It means that your site will automagically rearrange itself to work as well on a mobile phone as a full size desktop computer.
Not only do responsive sites improve legibility and usability for mobile users, who now account for more than 50% of internet traffic. In addition, Google rewards responsive sites with higher search engine rankings.
You can test your site to see if it is responsive by minimizing the window size on your monitor, and/or by viewing it on your phone. If it is not responsive, it may be time for a new website.
Stay current and join the responsive crowd!
