Casa Barelas (former Filling Station)
Artists Ellen Babcock and Christine Posner in collaboration with members of the Barelas neighborhood
Ongoing work in progress
1024 4th St. Albuquerque, NM
The former Filling Station on 4th street has been recently purchased by a longtime Barelas community activist and renamed the Casa Barelas. FOS is in the planning stages of a revitalization that will include repair of the sign and reader board, development of community generated artwork for the upper oval, fixing the motor that rotates it, and installation of new low-draw LED lighting. Vintage lettering will be purchased for changing messages posted on the reader board.
