The Sangre de Cristo’s summit still has its white caps, but winter is officially over – and spring has sprung in The City Different! May events this year will have you basking in sunshine in the great Santa Fe outdoors! Enjoy the bright skies with a refreshing margarita (or two), cycling, and en plein air painting.
Santa Fe is one of the world’s largest and most diverse art hubs. If you love culture as much as we do, you’ll be glad to know that Santa Fe was most recently named the Best Destinations for Culturephiles by readers of USAToday’s 10Best.
There’s so much to see and absorb here! This spring the city’s renowned museums are elevating the experience with a slate of special exhibits. The new shows will highlight the past, present and future through photography, miniatures, watercolor paintings, exotic jewelry and more.
Here’s a selection:
Here in our beautiful city the “Art Walk” has become a very popular way for art lovers to take in Santa Fe’s many galleries. Santa Fe has over 250 galleries, many clustered in three unique areas, including Canyon Road, the Santa Fe Railyard and Downtown Santa Fe.
What I love about art walks is the wonderful opportunity to interact personally with the artists and gallery owners. They are often available to answer questions and chat. You’ll feel the general “art opening” vibe in the air. This is a great way to meet and strike up a conversation with artists, locals and visitors alike!
If you are an art enthusiast or collector, you will find in Santa Fe an unparalleled diversity of fine art ranging from traditional to contemporary, including painting, sculpture, mixed media, graphic art and textiles.Order My 2019 Santa Fe Travel Guide
