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.

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 private use and rehearsals.
