Celebrate West Central Rt. 66 Street Light Banner Project
Call for Art Submissions

The West Central Community Development Group is calling for local artists, young and old to submit artwork for banners to be displayed along West Central Ave. The «Celebrate West Central Route 66» Street Banner Project is to honor the cultural and historic traditions of the Atrisco Southwest area of Albuquerque. Part of the Atrisco Land Grant, this area was incorporated into Albuquerque over 50 years ago with the main arterial Central Avenue and historic Route 66 running through it.

For Albuquerque residents especially, those of us west of the river, West Central was the only way to cross back and forth across the Rio Grande. Central Avenue became a place for young and old to cruise, to meet new and old friends at popular drive-ins along the route, shop, socialize, and to show off our vintage cars and lowriders. Named the Mother Road, Route 66 is far more than just a sign on the side of the road; it's a passage into our culture, history, and traditions.

So, take a cruise with us, open your mind, and show us your vision of West Central
«Route 66»: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.
