Warehouse 508
508 Mural Fest 2017

What's Going On!

The 1st Annual 508 Mural Fest is a public art mural festival in Albuquerque, New Mexico produced by Warehouse 508 and Worldwide UnderGround. We aim to unite and beautify our city while empowering our youth.

There will be ten murals painted throughout the city with a focus on the downtown area. Two murals will be painted over the Spring & Summer with eight murals painted simultaneously starting on the 12th of September. Events will be held throughout the painting process with a huge block party, Somos ABQ, wrapping up the festivities on September 23, 2017 in downtown, ABQ on Central Ave.

Our first mural, located on the corner of Lead and Broadway was painted by Thomas Christopher Haag, assisted by Warehouse 508 youth and volunteer community members. It is a 100 x 8 foot wall that greets people to downtown Albuquerque. Click here to view
