ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Cottonwood Mall got a new splash of color recently. Over the weekend, Albuquerque artist Nazario Sandoval finished up a more than 3,000-square foot mural.
The mural can be found at the main entrance of the shopping center. It all began last month as part of an effort called the Canvas Project.
The mall is temporarily closed to the public due to the current public health order. However, several retailers are participating in curbside pickup. Cottonwood Mall is also encouraging guests to stay in their vehicles and take a selfie with the mural in the background while they wait for their curbside pickup.
Photos uploaded to Instagram with the tags #cottonwoodcares @cottonwoodmall and @wemfer will be entered to win a gift card from various retailers.
