Los Alamos County ‘Art Tunnel’ ready for fresh art

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. (KRQE) – The tunnel in the underpass near Canyon Rim Trail has been refreshed for new art. The tunnel offers spots for 80 works of art.

The wall gets a fresh coat of white paint each year to renew the art spaces. Then, artists can scan a QR code, fill out a short form, and fill in a space.
