The Harwood Art Center

The Harwood Art Center of Escuela del Sol Montessori is Albuquerque's only full-spectrum community art center and the city's largest multi-media art space. From 1925 - 1976 the building housed the Harwood Girls School, a Methodist boarding school for girls. Now this registered historic site is a thriving community of artists, and a gathering place that brings the public and the arts community together.

The Harwood Art Center is owned and operated by Escuela del Sol Montessori, and offers a vast array of arts programs to the community including theater and dance performances, concerts, film screenings, exhibitions, extensive classes for all ages in both visual and performing arts, and a summer arts camp for children.

The building's old dormitory rooms and classrooms have been converted to lively studios for artists working in painting, sculpture, photography, jewelry, fiber art, graphic design, book making and more.

The old dining hall is regularly transformed into a performance space for concerts and performance events. The building also houses 2 formal art galleries and 2 community art galleries, a dance studio, and a darkroom.

The Harwood galleries are open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm.
