Have you seen Working Classroom’s murals?

Working Classroom is a multi-ethnic, inter-generational community of student & professional artists, writers, actors and directors with a conscious commitment to supporting new and diverse voices and visions in the arts. The underrepresentation and caricature of historically ignored communities hampers our understanding of who we are as a nation, how we interpret our past and contemplate our future. We contribute to a more nuanced understanding of American identity by training aspiring artists and actors from historically ignored communities and creating art and theater by, for and about these communities.

There are several incredible Working Classroom murals on or near this year’s ABQ CiQlovía route and we encourage everyone to check out this great work! Check them out while attending the event or anytime at your leisure! Also, be sure to stop by Working Classroom (423 Atlantic SW 87102) during ABQ CiQlovía where there will be an open house/volunteer day with a workshop for kiddos to make wire and cloth figures. More details coming soon!
