The Art and Craft is a segment dedicated to capturing the city of Albuquerque through a photographic medium. With murals and locations as unique as the inhabitants, this is an attempt to capture the art and scenery, which often gets overlooked. Modern Albuquerque is defined by the unique diversity of cultures converging to create a one of a kind city. This culture is defined by the arts and craft that the various communities share with the city and its visitors, leaving a craving to relive locations or the wonderful sites witnessed through travel.
Much of Central Avenue is decorated by murals that reflect the business types, seen here on the side of the El Rey theater is the art of a time when the theater was active in the craft of entertainment.
Even parts of downtown have amazing murals that depict businessmen and nature scenes; against the blue sky backdrop large buildings break the horizon to accommodate the working class of downtown Albuquerque.
Tucked away on side streets that make up the backbone of downtown Albuquerque are beautiful murals that reflect the neighborhood and culture. Some of these murals are easy to find and others are hidden into the cityscape, seemingly only created for the amusement of the artist.
