Acequia Revilization Public Art Project w/Reyes Padilla

We have started a new project in collaboration with local artist Reyes Padilla.

Reyes Padilla is an Albuquerque-based painter and muralist whose creations on canvas and site-specific installations take inspiration from the New Mexico landscape and the multicultural environment in which he was raised.
We are adding a mosaic component to his Acequia Revitalization project at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
