From a interviewÂ with theÂ artistÂ behind the rainbows: “Why do you think the one at Sixth Street and Central has gotten so much attention?
The building itself is already kind of in a weird standpoint. It was in the news. Itâ€™s just this ugly, eyesore, half-completed building thatâ€™s been that way for years. I think because it was already in peopleâ€™s minds, they saw this ugly building with these ugly connections. I chose that one because Iâ€™ve been looking at it since they stopped construction and I knew it was going to be just another building in Albuquerque that was going to sit until it fell apart. I chose it because it already had some attention, and some negative attention, and I wanted to direct that negative attention and show that sometimes something ugly can be beautiful, too.” More.
