Motel

This one wall behind a music venue (I think) in Albuquerque was one big interesting mural from one end of the building to the other; this even has the ubiquitous string of peppers which we saw for sale almost everywhere we went.  I believe wall murals can show you a slice of their local culture.

    Great capture of the mural. The building the mural is on has been vacant for years. It has an interesting split level design on the interior, but I think it has some serious structural issues that make it difficult to lease. The Sunshine Theater (music venue) is across the street.

    Love it when someone uses paint to create a faux facade for a building. This one’s perspective is spot on.

    Incorporating the open wall-less space and appliances is such a fascinating part of the mural. You almost wonder what the artist was picturing or his/her motivation! (?) Nice share!

      Thank you. My friend who works near here said it is an homage to Route 66 but I agree that the way existing things were incorporated into the mural was quite good!
