ABQ TO DO Crew has Family Friendly Events Coming Up

The Creative Bravos Awards has a 30-year history of celebrating the people, businesses, and organizations that have left their mark on both the cultural and creative economy in the greater Albuquerque area.

The exhibition “Visions of the Hispanic World: Treasures from the Hispanic Society Museum & Library” includes over 200 of the most exceptional works spanning over 3,000 years from the collections of the Hispanic Society of America in New York City. A significant number of these works have not been exhibited outside of the Hispanic Society, and some have never before been exhibited.

Earlier this summer, the City of Albuquerque’s Cultural Services Department revived the decades-long tradition of honoring the creative work by artists, programs, organizations, businesses, and events that make a significant impact on the lives of area residents, neighborhoods, and communities
The 2018 Creative Bravos Awards winners are:
Native Realities, Circo Latino, Ebony Isis Booth, Kei & Molly Textiles and Ideum.
