From the Lower Valley of El Paso to Anthony, New Mexico, just past the western edge of the county, murals and sculptures color the borderland and add vibrancy to our public spaces.

In this installment of our monthly Art Spot feature, we bring you an array of pieces that are part of the city’s Public Art Plan. Overseen by the city’s Museums and Cultural Affairs Department, the plan allocates a percentage of a project’s budget to public art.

To add to the mix, we also bring you a mural by El Paso artist Christin Apodaca, whose work is increasingly dotting the borderland with her unique style and touch.

To suggest a piece of public art to be featured, email Cindy Ramirez at
