WCCDG has worked to provide opportunities for local artists and to nurture arts and culture along West Central. The Arte Escondido: West Central Route 66 Street Light Banner Project highlights cultural and historic traditions of the Southwest area of Albuquerque. For Albuquerque residents especially, those of us west of the river, West Central was the only way to cross back and forth across the Rio Grande. It was a place for young and old to cruise, to meet new and old friends at popular drive-ins along the route, shop, socialize, and to show off our vintage cars and low-riders. Named the Mother Road, Route 66 is far more than just a sign on the side of the road; it‘s a passage into our culture, traditions, and history.
