About the Map

The ONE ABQ MOVE “Map of Enchantment” was created through a grant from the National Conference of Mayors received in 2020. The map is designed to meet the grant goal of fighting childhood obesity in a fun and creative way by encouraging kids, teens, and families to explore Route 66 in search of public art.

City of Albuquerque teen interns were the catalysts for the idea of these scavenger hunts. The interns were engaged in the facilitation and execution of the City’s Youth Connect program Teen Nights in the summer of 2019 and culminated their internship with a presentation on how to engage youth in Albuquerque. Due to the pandemic, plans for the map and scavenger hunts were slightly derailed, but Youth Connect is excited to launch this program in September 2022!

About the Map Artists

Dante Tsuzuki - Map & CoversA photo of a man kneeling.

Dante is a New Mexican born, Asian American designer, with a passion for textiles and marketing. Dante received a BFA concentrated in graphic and fashion design from the University of Michigan. Growing up in New Mexico, Dante has been exposed to the value of different cultural approaches and brings those same values into his multimedia design. Being Japanese-American, Dante’s art is informed in part by his awareness of race dynamics in this country, and by social and political injustices.

Ann Gleason - Critters of New MexicoA image of a woman wearing glasses.

Ann was born in Frankfurt Germany but is a true Albuquerque denizen at heart, having spent all of high school, college, and her entire professional career in the city. After attending college at CNM and double majoring in graphic design and web technology, she began her career in graphic design but quickly expanded her professional eye to marketing, social media, and CMS support. She has had the wonderful opportunity to lend her illustration skills to projects during her creative career, including the Critters of New Mexico design.

Featuring just a small sampling of the important wildlife that calls New Mexico home, Critters of New Mexico seeks to both educate and delight. What's your favorite Critter of New Mexico?
