Experience the gallery through a scheduled tour of the 10-acre foothills site and explore the art and architecture of Ted DeGrazia, including the original home of the prolific artist and his wife Marion, their burial sites, the adobe Mission in the Sun, Gallery in the Sun and the cactus corral.
Tours last about 90 minutes with 30 minutes outside, so good walking shoes are advised. Allow extra time to watch a 30-minute documentary about the artist and to visit the gift shop. Tour topics include the life, history and philosophy of DeGrazia, as well as art mediums and techniques, Native American legends and ceremonies.
Public tours of the Gallery in the Sun are available Monday through Friday from 10:00am-4:00pm. To schedule a tour in advance contact the Education Director, Shannon Stone, at 520-299-9191, 800-545-2185 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
