Join Us in Supporting Tortuga Gallery’s Bosque Mural


In collaboration with Mural Fest 2018 and Tortuga Gallery, three local artists (Denise Weaver Ross, Joel Davis, and Roe LiBretto) have designed a nearly 25′ x 90′ mural, celebrating the flora and fauna of Albuquerque’s Rio Grande Bosque. The mural will wrap around the gallery’s home at 901 Edith SE during Mural Fest 2018 starting at the end of September. Tural Fest 2018 has worked with Tortuga and the artists to launch a Go Fund Me campaign. 15% of the money raised during the Go Fund Me campaign will go to Sierra Club’s Bosque Action Team.

On your birthday

Greetings from Chicago
Happy 4th of July!


A new tradition is being birthed

Chicago, fireworks and lots of mirth

Hopes for Hamilton, a musical with brains

And next weekend to sell lots of cranes

Our next art show should be a smash

Before that, Richard should get some laughs.
