“If you ever enter a gallery or museum a feeling of art comes over you, but when you enter Gallery in the Sun, more happens. You almost feel what he felt when he was painting his pictures. You could tell what mood he was in.” Haley Latrecchia, Age 10
Children’s access to art has been an important principle of the DeGrazia Foundation since it’s founding.
Self-guided tours include a walk through of Ted and Marion’s original home located on our 10 acre site, as well as their burial sites. Most of the tour will be spent walking the Mission in the Sun and the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun. Groups will be outside for approximately a half hour, so please dress for the weather and region.
Expect to learn about the life, history and philosophy of the prolific artist Ted DeGrazia. We will discuss art mediums and techniques, Southwest Native American legends and ceremonies, desert horticulture and recycling objects for art, among other topics.
