Old Town Holly Hock #5 Banner 5th and Mountain Road Albuquerque New Mexico

I’m not sure I have blogged about my banner yet!  Here is the scoop.  Julianna Kirwin put together a public arts project.  When all was said and done, I had a pretty banner hanging from a lamp post on 5th and Mountain Road.  My banner will hang for a year along with others that span the blocks between 5th and 12th Street.  I was especially excited to have my piece hung across the street from a banner of  Johnny Tapia.  Very cool.
