On the first Friday of every month, The Albuquerque Artwalk puts on, “ABQ Art Walk,” a walking event in downtown Albuquerque featuring independent artists, entrepreneurs, artisans as well as brick and mortar businesses.
I was not aware of ABQ Art Walk until being told about it recently by some new friends here. With the weather turning more Spring-like by the day, I decided to head out and see it for myself.
There were people smiling and music playing everywhere I went, and were it not for the spacing with restaurants and bars at limited capacity, it would be easy to forget the pandemic. Still, it was a perfect night out; the weather was fantastic and the beverages frosty.
Off camera, I managed to run into the person that got ABQ Art Walk started and will interview him soon, but for now I thought it would be nice to show some pics of people safely enjoying our city, and I’ll be sure to feature some of these entrepreneurs and artists soon.
Enjoy the pictures, and mark your calendar for the next ABQ Art Walk May 7th!
