Route 66 Mural Project

Currently in progress, this public art project will bring a Route 66-themed, 3-dimensional mural to Gallup’s historic highway. Including a restored 1957 Ford Sedan and a 1957 Chevy Wagon, this mixed media mural will harken to the heydays of cross-country car travel, when families piled into their cherished cars… parents, kids, dogs and luggage… and experienced the beauty and diversity of this amazing country. UNM-Gallup automotive and welding students are hard at work on the cars and legendary Gallup muralist Ric Sarracino is on deck to paint the mural!
