Esther Bone Library Youth Program

Rio Rancho Art Association helped with last weeks Youth Program (June 12th) at the Esther Bone library in Rio Rancho by curating the special exhibition of spray art on display in the library. In addition, spray artist, Nick Tramontina did a live demonstration on a ten foot canvas while everyone enjoyed the music by the DJ, Garronteed, rap music by the 2ubers and classic rock music performed the Riverside Jam.

The Rio Rancho Journal also featured an article on the event (publication date was June 12th). I hope you got a chance to see that article as it puts a positive spin on spray art. Nick has also painted the dumpster enclosure in the back of the library done in a whimsical Southwest cartoon theme (by the way, RRAA sponsored that work). The art on the enclosure was intended for young children to view during the reading programs there at the library. Nick has also done the art on the reading room wall at the Shining Stars Pre School, the exterior of the Launchpad building (downtown Albuquerque) and much of the terrain park at Angel Fire Ski Resort.

We hope that programs like this will help our youth in knowing that there are good choices that can be made.

Here's a slide show that captures the afternoon's event:
