The murals of Albuquerque, New Mexico

The city government of Albuquerque, in partnership with the private sector, promotes a program of public art that is on display throughout the city. Called “MurosABQ,” (Muros is Spanish for “walls”) it promotes a U.S. southwest tradition of mural painting that is influenced by Mexican mural artists such as Diego Rivera. Both local artists, as well as muralists from all over the U.S., have painted their work on the walls of Albuquerque. New Mexico has long attracted artists to the inspiring natural environment of the high desert.

The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array/ Central New Mexico

The Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array is a radio astronomy observatory located in central New Mexico on the Plains of San Agustin, and was a location in the movie “Contact.” It is on a fairly isolated high desert plateau (about 7,000 ft.) and surrounded by mountains, making it an ideal spot to avoid the normal wireless interference in cities. The lack of humidity in the air also makes for a clearer radio signal. There is no cell service there and visitors are asked to put their phones in airplane mode.

The array is routinely re-configured to cover different parts of the sky by moving the dishes on a network of railroad tracks.

This is part of a photo series featuring the American southwest.
