The Art in Transit Portraits that will be featured at the bus stations.

Next week, 15 bus shelters in the International District will feature striking portraits of International District residents; people for the most part wrapped in gauzy tulle fabric, smiling and posing.

The display is part of ID Live!, a free weekend event by Littleglobe to showcase the various art projects produced by the organization.

“Our Department is piloting a program in which bus shelter display space is filled with artwork that reflects Albuquerque’s diverse neighborhoods,” said Bruce Rizzieri, Director of ABQ RIDE.

Art in Transit’s first bus shelter exhibit is in partnership with Littleglobe, an organization dedicated to re-energizing the International District through art and community engagement.

After the unveiling at the bus shelter, other portraits will be available for viewing at the nearby Sundowner Community Room at 6101 Central NE.

These photographs will be on display at the Sundowner through 6 p.m., Sunday, July 27. They will also remain in the bus shelters through fall, 2014.
