A-1 Machine Shop, featuring photography by Mel Stone, continues through Saturday, November 8, at the Branigan Cultural Center. The exhibition offers a photographic tour of A-1 Machine Shop, owned and operated by Las Cruces native Rudy Tirre for over 30 years. The shop, located in Las Cruces’ historic Mesquite District, grinds valves, re-bores engine blocks, grinds crank shafts, and does other specialty jobs that bigger shops are reluctant to handle.
The museum is located at 501 N. Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at: museums.las-cruces.org or call 575-541- 2154.
