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.

Music was everywhere!

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.

Enjoy the pictures, and mark your calendar for the next ABQ Art Walk May 7th!
