The group says they hope to showcase artists in the city as well as Albuquerque’s art scene to visitors. “We really want to turn the downtown alleyways into something beautiful and something people from out of town can come and appreciate,” said Jessica Anderson.

About 85 artists have already provided submissions. Finalists will be selected on July 31. The group also plans to create a safe space for vendors during the art walk to showcase their art.
