Albuquerque Downtown Arts & Cultural District: Public Art Map

Downtown Albuquerque is home to our city's greatest concentration of public artworks.  These works, ranging from traditional bronzes immortalizing important figures in the city's history to nonobjective murals that add beauty, interest, and excitement to our bustling corridors, speak to the history and character of Albuquerque from its Pre-Columbian past to the present.  

The works represented on this map are part of the City of Albuquerque Public Art Collection and fall within the bounds of the Downtown Albuquerque Arts & Cultural District.  In addition to these outdoor pieces there are a number of 2D artworks in public buildings including City Hall, the Main Library, and the Albuquerque Convention Center.

Public Art Bicycle Tours

Get on your bicycle and enjoy these public art tours!

Created by Don and Pamela Michaelis, this tour is the result of their love of art and passion for cycling. Although a few of the pieces are not part of the City of Albuquerque Public Art Collection, (# 3, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 26), it is still a great bicycle-friendly tour of art in the public realm. Enjoy!
