JUNE – SEPTEMBER 2020
the Sanitary Tortilla Factory will be hosting an artist led project in creating a large public art piece to be included in the International Albuquerque Sunport’s public art collection. The collaborative artist team will re-envision the graphic content of each letter of ALBUQUERQUE. Using the rich history of Albuquerque (1300-present) artists will create sophisticated graphic symbols of the region’s complex histories. Popular cultural icons will share space with the buried histories that uniquely honor the history and cultural diversity of what we call Albuquerque.
