ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — For the past four days, artists have lined up on Central Avenue in Downtown Albuquerque bringing building aesthetics back to life.
Boarded-up businesses received a pop of color from more than 50 artists during the project, spearheaded by OT Circus Gallery and Paint for Peace 505.
Early June 1, many Downtown businesses were damaged when a riot broke out following a protest over the death of George Floyd.
According to organizers, the art will stay up until businesses finish repairs.
The boards will be auctioned off for charity once they are removed from the businesses.
A drive-through art show is planned for Friday, July 17, according to the organizers.
