DeGrazia’s Saguaro Harvest
The giant saguaro cactus of the Sonoran Desert casts a long shadow over the career of Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia. From his depictions of the traditional saguaro harvest of the Tohono O’odham people, and his use of the iconic cactus as both a regional landscape element, and as an abstracted symbolic design, saguaros were an enduring source of natural inspiration. “DeGrazia’s Saguaro Harvest” features a selection of saguaro drawings, paintings and jewelry that spans 25 years of his career. The exhibit is currently on display at the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Museum.
