Event and Facilities Rentals

The Harwood Art Center, originally the home of the Harwood Girls School (1925-1976), is housed in a 1925 neo-classical Revival style building just north of downtown Albuquerque on the Mountain Road side of the Sawmill-Wells Park neighborhoods. Harwood occupies most of the building with artist studios, galleries, classrooms and offices. Harwood also owns and operates the old church building at the corner of Mountain Road and Sixth Street as an art studio/classroom.

We welcome community use of our spaces — meeting, classroom and performance spaces; darkroom; and artist studios.

Meeting, Event and Performance Spaces

  • The 6th Street Studio South, located at 1023 Mountain Road, is the new home for many of our Art Classes and is available for small meetings.
  • The “Dining Hall,” located in our Main Building, boasts some of the best natural light in town and is a perfect location for community meetings, organizational retreats, presentations, screenings and performances.
  • The basement-level Theater offers a fabulous venue for small (max capacity 50) theatrical productions.
  • Our spring loaded dance floor (barefoot only please!) is available for private use and rehearsals.

Each of these spaces can be rented for as low as $45/hour (cleaning fee and deposit required). The Dining Hall and Theater space are available for rent after business hours M-F and from 7am-10pm Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please contact Dani Belvin, Programs & Education Coordinator >.

HARWOOD STORIES

Richard Goulis

Former Harwood Employee

In 1992, I answered a HELP WANTED ad for substitute teachers at Escuela del Sol Montessori. There I met Friedje, who astutely noticed I had some experience in organizing artists and arts organizations. I began searching for interested artists and set out creating art workshops for the community. We soon began offering about 30 workshops, in everything from pinhole photography, drawing, performance art, to ceramics, mask making, video production and more.  After this successful summer session, I was offered a managerial position and began to see what could come of the newly minted “Harwood Art Center.”  After about one year we had 65 amazing artists in the studios, with a growing waiting list of well over 50 people, a working performance space, dance floor and darkroom, various gallery spaces, as well as classes just about every night of the week.
