CASA BARELAS (former Filling Station)




Artists Ellen Babcock and Christine Posner in collaboration with members of the Barelas neighborhood


Designed in 2014, installed in 2018.


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 has completed a full revitalization of this sign, including: a repair of the sign body and reader board, development and installation of community generated artwork for the upper oval, fixing the motor that rotates it, and installation of new low-draw LED lighting. Vintage lettering was purchased for a community generated message posted on the reader board.
