Las Cruces Project

ALMA is excited to announce a new collaboration with the City of Las Cruces Mural Arts Program and the city of Las Cruces to create a new public mural in Las Cruces, NM.

This project will run this summer for 6 weeks from mid-June to end of July.  There will be about 3-5 youth volunteers that will be participating in every step of the process.  It will also combine both handmade ceramic tile mosaic in addition to painted elements.  We will be creating all of our tiles at the Frank O’brien Papen Community Center and then installing the mural at the Armando “Mondy” Castaneda, Parks and Recreation Administration Building.  If you are in the area, come see us!
