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

SUZANNE SBARGE
SUZANNE SBARGE

Former Director of Harwood

When I started the building was primarily a studio center for artists with very little public programming. The only staff members were the Building Manager Marshall Kovitz and me, and we were both part-time. I worked to expand the reach of Harwood through lots more exhibitions, classes and events, and the Harwood Summer Arts Camp. I focused on community involvement and marketing, which transformed Harwood from a mostly quiet studio center into a public venue that was always buzzing with activity.

I am grateful to the Harwood for launching my career in arts administration over 20 years ago and for serving as the umbrella for 516 ARTS in our first year.
