Local News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A new mural is honoring an Albuquerque woman for her dedication to community service.

Work recently wrapped up on a 32-foot mural in honor of Jennifer Riordan, who died in a Southwest Airlines accident a year ago. It took four months to complete the piece, thanks to the Jennifer Riordan Sparkle Fund, the Albuquerque Community Foundation and Working Classroom.

Monday, that mural was revealed to the public.

“We’ve thought for a number of years about having a mural on this wall. We never imagined we’d have something of this amazing beauty, a true piece of art,” Randy Royster, Present of the Albuquerque Community Foundation, said.

Riordan was known for her kindness and charitable contributions throughout Albuquerque.
