Note: In September 2017, we invited several bloggers to experience Santa Fe for the first time.  This week we are sharing a blog post from that trip, written by Ashley of  Surf and Sunshine. We hope Ashley’s blog gives you new ideas for your next Santa Fe weekend getaway itinerary.

7 Incredible Art Experiences You Can Only Have in Santa Fe, New Mexico

Note: As the contemporary art scene in Santa Fe continues to bloom, we wanted to share article “Incredible Art Experiences You Can Only Have in Santa Fe, New Mexico” from Alexandra Marx via Matador Network. 

Santa Fe has a long history of being an art destination known for its turquoise jewelry, Western paintings, and bronze sculptures, but The City Different has a surprise for you.

We’re talking art parties lasting into the early hours of the morning and secret, invite-only gallery openings. Seriously — these brazenly nontraditional arts experiences deserve to be as synonymous with Santa Fe as the movie biz is with Hollywood. The city sits quietly ranked as one of the largest arts markets in the US, with small, independent artists thriving here. When compared to the sheer size and pace of New York and LA, Santa Fe stands as an unparalleled beacon for collaboration and innovation in contemporary art.

Check out these seven art experiences if you want to see the future of mixed media and performance.
