Value of street art recognized and celebrated in Albuquerque

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.”

MurosABQ.com in the News

Take a look at this awesome television report from local station KRQE about why we built MurosABQ.com Thanks for the sweet report by Allison Martinez.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Murals are everywhere around Albuquerque, and now there’s a website highlighting the best of them and helping you find them.

“There’s something just so artsy about here, I just love driving through,” said muralist Amelia Richardson. “You get to see so many murals and so many mosaics that you don’t get anywhere else.”

Portraying everything from nature and tradition, to history and religion, there’s an abundance of murals around Albuquerque.

Out with the old… in with the older?

We want you to meet the newest member of the Studio Hill family. We’ve replaced our somewhat awkward corporate bicycle with a beautiful 1973 Hercules three speed cruiser. We love getting around downtown without having to worry about parking, plus we get bonus exercise points! So if you see her around be sure to say “Hi”. Her name is Holly and she’s a bit of a flirt. She might even let you take her for a spin.
