A look into the past. Display rooms are will laid out with the various themes presented by the artist. A walk on the grounds gives you a feels of the real conditions of living in the desert in the past.

I find the gallery to be a very spiritual place to visit. Watching the video helps put perspective on its history.

We've been over a dozen times and always enjoy our visit. While I appreciate DeGrazia's work, I will admit that I am not a devoted fan. However, I love the serenity of the place that he has created and the beauty of his work. The small mission on the property is simple but beautiful. The artistic touches added to the... More

The DeGrazia Gallery is in a lovely spot, situated in the foothills over Tucson. The gallery is very interesting--for more than just the art on the walls!--and the people working there are always courteous, informative, and helpful.

I have been here several times, and it is always an option I offer visitors from out of town. While they rotate some exhibits, much stays the same. Yet, I discover something new, if only a perspective, each time. Ted DeGrazia fascinates me. He impresses me with the way he really lived life to the fullest, and was so in... More

This was probably one of my favorite stops we made in our week in Tucson. The garden and decoration outside are absolutely gorgeous. The mission to the left of the gallery is probably one of the most spiritual places I've visited personally. I almost got emotional! Its incredible quiet and meditative. The gallery is very nice too. I really enjoyed... More

Gallery is open seven days a week and it is free. It is work all done by one artist native to Tucson. Amazing work. You get to see his studio and where he lived. Great gift shop. I go quite often.

We'd heard so much about the artist and this gallery, maybe we expected too much. The buildings and ambiance are lovely and interesting, but the art - not so much! At best, I find his art simplistic and childlike. The many galleries get quite repetitive. We did not go out into the gardens since it was over 100 already.

Unexpected and delightful! Make sure to take the tour to fully appreciate the life and creativity of this folk artist. Loved the courtyard as a rest stop.

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
