DENISE WEAVER ROSS & ROE LiBRETTO
Orpheum Community Hub Mural Design on 500 2nd St SW
Artist Denise Weaver Ross has been commissioned to create a mural on the face of the Orpheum Building in downtown Albuquerque. The winning design, shown above, represents a film reel unfurling across the north face of the building. This image portrays scenes important to the life of the community, and alludes to the area’s economic transition from the steam locomotive to the film industry. The mural contains images from the culture and history of the Barelas neighborhood, beginning on the Western end with a steam locomotive and then moving through images of important people: Senator Dennis Chávez, Dr. Aragon (the President of New Mexico Highlands University), Rudolfo Anaya (the author of Bless Me Ultimá), and Maclovia Sanchez de Zamora (an herbalist and healer, who worked at the B. Ruppe Drugstore for over 30 years); it then transitions to scenes from traditional community pageants such as the Dance of the Matachines and La Posada, and ends with a visual reference to the windows at the Railyards. The background of the mural will be a stylized and impressionistic portrayal of the Rio Grande and the Sandia Mountains, as well as a low-rider parked on the banks of the river, representing the car culture associated with life along Route 66. Artist Roe LiBretto will assist Denise in implementing the final vision. Look for them up on scaffolds outside of the building soon!
Did you know that Old Town has seven venues participating in First Friday ARTScrawls? Oh yeah! That’s a lot of homegrown art from small businesses in Albuquerque’s walkable, charming historical district! We need your help in letting local residents know that Old Town is not just for visitors (or when Aunt Em is in town…). Do these fantastic venues and their artists a solid, and spread the word! In the months to come, we plan to team up with Old Town’s award-winning restaurants to make ARTScrawl in Old Town the perfect night out. Stay tuned!
