Join artists Francesca SearerNani ChaconErin De RosaJessica Chao, and Helen Greenfeather English for a tour of Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge Field Murals, followed by a poetry walk through the Bosque with Albuquerque Poet Laureate Michelle Otero and Amaris Ketchum, who has done a poetic inventory analogous to a “scientific inventory” of the Rio Grande’s biodiversity.

The field murals are a collaborative art project sponsored by the Bernalillo County Public Art Program. Each of the murals represent different ecosystems/habitats being developed throughout the Refuge, showcasing the future of the land through artistic interpretations of the flora and fauna that will consider these sites home. The tour departs the Refuge parking lot at 2pm to caravan through the fields and then participants can park by the Bosque for the poetry walk to the river.


516 ARTS and partners present Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande, an exhibition and series of regional public programs responding to the global biological crisis described in the new UN Report that officially state that nature’s dangerous decline is “unprecedented,” and species extinction rates are accelerating at
an alarming pace.
