Gallery Shows & Events

A Day in the Life - Opens Friday, January 5, 2024 with a reception and City Hall Public Art Open House from 5-8 p.m. The exhibition will be on view through March 7.

24 hours can change a life in the simplest of ways. A hot meal delivery. Finding a puppy a forever home. Or helping someone plan dreams for their family. City of Albuquerque workers do all that and more in a day. They know the depth of work it takes to make change happen for people who count on the city to work for them.

Seven local photographers sought to reveal the human side of city government. Assigned or 'embedded' with a selected department for 24 hours, they documented the people who make our city run. "A Day in the Life" is a study of how we are all an important part of improving our Quality of Life.

The exhibit features photographs by Max Woltman, Sean Wright, Angel Gil Lopez, Jessica Lozoya, Adrian Martin, Jessica Roybal, and Pico del Hierro-Villa; and highlights the work of seven city departments: Senior Affairs, Arts & Culture, Solid Waste, Parks and Recreation, Animal Welfare, Albuquerque Community Safety, and Planning. The exhibit also features poetry by Hakim Bellamy and an installation in the Art Vault by Adrian Pijoan.

Each series of photographs in this Inaugural Gallery One exhibit will also be installed in the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History Photo Archives.
