When the pandemic forced businesses to close in March, Albuquerque artist and teacher Courtney Angermeier put all her efforts into spreading positivity and raising money for relief efforts. Angermeier was able to accomplish all of that through her art.
The bright colors and carefully crafted creatures painted by Angermeier along Columbia Drive offer a nice change to passersby.
When schools closed back in March, Angermeier was in search of a project and was lucky enough to find a blank canvas in her own neighborhood. Her murals depict New Mexico landscapes among the natural vegetation.
What started as a beautification project quickly grew into much more. People were willing to hire her to paint murals. Her $40 an hour rate transitioned into money for organizations like Roadrunner Food Bank, NAACP, and the Navajo Nation COVID relief fund.
