The Next Second Saturday ARTWALK:
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 2009

NOTE:
This page is a record of the scale of the Second Saturday Artwalks that were being produced by Roy Montibon and Adam Caldwell before resigning as the Chair and Coordinator, (repsectively), of the New Mexico Arts and Cultural District | Las Vegas, and cutting ties with State MainStreet and MainStreet de Las Vegas.

Roy and Adam have since re-formed the original SPACE organization that existed prior to the State ACD Designation, as SPACE: Special Projects in Arts Culture and Education, an independent community arts network of artists, design and arts professionals and educators. For information on SPACE and its activities, contact Roy Montibon at 505. 454. 9330, or roy@montibon.com.

(45 min. east of Santa Fe: take the University Ave. exit from I-25)

The Artwalk spans the historic Railroad, New Town, North New Town, Bridge Street, Plaza and Old Town neighborhoods.
