“Albuquerque in a Tree” a show of artwork and designs produced by Highland High School students in collaboration with Friends of the Orphan Signs, will take place in the lobby of the newly renovated Hiland Theater May 4-5. The opening reception is Saturday, May 4,  from 4-8 p.m. The exhibit will be open on Sunday, May 5 from 1- 5 p.m.

Friends of the Orphan Signs is a local not-for-profit collaborative of artist educators that work with communities to create artwork for Albuquerque’s empty signs. Since Last September, Michael Lopez and Lindsey Fromm of FOS have been working closely with Sue Triplett’s art class at Highland High to imagine possible interventions on signs along Central Avenue. The old American Inn sign and Tradewinds Motel sign will be displaying selected Highland student work to Albuquerque motorists and pedestrians during the exhibition. This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of the New Mexico Arts Council.
