The Art of Canyon Road
Nowhere else in the world can one find such incredible diversity of art and fine art galleries than on Canyon Road. In less than one mile, there are one hundred galleries featuring art that ranges from contemporary, abstract and modern to multicultural, expressionistic and figurative. Galleries showcase paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor, and encaustic; along with sculptures in stone, bronze, marble, clay, and wood. And all can be found in the century-old buildings and historic gardens of this magical old road.

The Historic Santa Fe Foundation located at El Zaguán, a historic property and garden at 545 Canyon Road, is open weekdays and features an incredible collection of photos and information on Santa Fe and Canyon Road’s early days.
In addition to its architectural preservation efforts, the foundation supports the art community with its Artists’ Residency Program – an artist’s community of 5 working artists who live at El Zaguán.
The foundation’s annual Sunday afternoon tour on Mother’s Day is often held during the same weekend as Passport to the Arts. More information is available at www.historicsantafe.org.
