Join us Wednesday, October 16 at 10:30 a.m. and get the scoop on Let’s Art Amarillo: The Barrio Project. The Barrio Arts Committee selected 20 locations and people that have a story to tell about the history of the barrio neighborhood. Many of these locations are no longer standing. Many of the people are no longer alive. And yet their significance to Amarillo remains. See locations at www.barrioartsproject.com
