Bernalillo County to Dedicate Blake Road Mural Project

11/01/2019

County Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada and the Bernalillo County Arts Board invite the community to a public art mural dedication ceremony on Friday, Nov. 1, at 10:30 a.m., at the NE corner of Blake Road and Coors Boulevard SW.

The mural, titled “Her Reflection is Resilience,” honors women of color who have raised and nurtured the South Valley community for generations.

Lead artists on the mural, Izabelle Martinez and Joshua Patterson, guided a group of mural apprentices from Working Classroom and the South Valley Academy and featured artist Angel Pavia through the design and painting of this mural.

The mural is painted on a retaining wall that was part of the recent Coors Boulevard and Blake Road improvements project.

“The community wanted a mural here to keep the wall from being tagged with graffiti,” says County Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada. “What makes this project so great is that it was initiated by the community and that’s what puts the ‘public’ in public art.

This project was funded through the 1% for Public Art Program, which is funded by 1% of the county's general obligation bonds passed during the general election every two years.
