The Mundos de Mestizaje fresco, the largest concave fresco, which took 9 years and covers 4,400sf of a watchtower at the National Hispanic Cultural Center was high on my list of "must sees" in Albuquerque. The biggest problem was getting there! Fortunately, our hotel had a shuttle bus which took us there and we were almost the only people! A docent did a wonderful job of explaining the mural. We then visited the main museum where a special exhibit of Chilean Agilleras, fabric pictures of protest done by Chilean women during the 1970's was being shown. It was heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. Perhaps it was because everyone else was at the Balloon Fiesta but we were so saddened to think that we were in Albuquerque during the height of tourist season and so few people had found this treasure!
