I moved to Tucson from New York not too long ago, and this is the first time I've EVER left NY in my 20 years of living, I wanted to see more of Tucson art and so I started looking up art museums and found DeGrazia Gallery in the sun. When I got there I was immediately impressed. The doors... More

Gorgeous foothills location, easy to get to. Nice outdoor area, great for photos. Some outdoor seating for taking it all in. Excellent gift shop; locals buy here. Interesting upscale architectural features on an otherwise traditional southwestern buildings - nicely done. Lovely display rooms inside and a short film about the artist, Ted. Perfect quick stop for singles, couples, friends.

We took our time and walked the old home, and little trails. We just enjoyed his paintings and art. There were other artists things there also, but De Grazia was great, Very enjoyable and interesting.

Love the history of this place and all the paintings by this artist. He used to live here! It's an amazing place! You'll recognize the art work because you've seen it before and have the opportunity to buy prints and books about him. Most of his art is of the tribe that was once predominantly in this area. And mostly... More

We went with friends, and I loved it. Even if you have no idea who DeGrazia is, you have to stop by this rustic Tucson Treasure.

Visit De Grazia's house which he built by hand and see a collection of his wonderful whimsical art which has enchanted people for over 60 years. The gallery and chapel reveal the soul of a man who had a deep love of the southwest culture and the desert itself.

Wow! How lucky were my siter and I that we were given a tour by Carol, DeGrazia's art assistant. I learned so much about the history of the pieces, the struggles of the artist and the mediums used. The art itself is colorful and the gallery itself is a gem. I have a better understanding and true appreciation for DeGrazia.

It's truly embarrassing that we have lived in this City for 8 years, and today (7/17) was the first time we visited this Tucson attraction. We were in the area for an errand, and decided that we should have a look. The look ended up being over two hours long, as we were totally captivated by the building, the surroundings... More

Ted DeGrazia was a famed individual, multi faceted, many layered, and extremely talented, His art work varies and all is to behold. The gift shop is very nice, you can purchase almost any level of price, the grounds, his chapel, his studio, are all highly worth seeing. Read a book about him.
