Women & Creativity: Apron Project
All through March, aprons have been hung on trees and fences at the corner of 9th and Gold SW as part of Women & Creativity's Apron Project. A group of local Albuquerque artists are using the medium of the apron as a canvas to express themes from women's lives, struggles and history. Monday is the last day of the month, so head over and see them before they are taken down.
