We arrived late, so did not get into the main gallery. But we were given permission to enter the house DeGrazia made and lived in, the church, and the visiting artist's building, by the artist in residence at that time, Francisco Norzagaray. I plan to return to see the gallery next time I'm down there. But what we did see... More

We had no idea what to expect from our visit to Ted DeGrazia's Gallery. We almost passed this by, due to time constraints. We were fascinated by the artist's gallery, his personal history (and how it influenced his work), and a tour of the grounds. Truly a unique experience! Go and see for yourself.

This gallery is definitely worth the drive. Admission is free. Got some great prints. There is a movie about Ted DeGrazia which is very informative.

The adobe-style buildings are interesting, especially the chapel and its murals. Ted DeGrazia's art is not to everyone's taste, but he was an interesting character. You can tour the buildings for free and even buy some of the art.

This is one of our "go-to's" when folks come to Tucson for a visit. We love the gallery, everything about it. One of most pleasant places in all of Tucson. De Grazia's story, his work, the location, the history, says it all. If you're coming to Tucson for the first time, take an hour or (3) to stroll through, and... More

Those that have spent time in the Southwest know DeGrazia, yet I never realized he had built a gallery in Tucson. This is a huge complex with his own work, a gift shop and a gallery of commission work. Additionally, a smaller studio used by different artists, a chapel and his home. Entry is free and it's possible to see... More

This is a fun stop off just to see the architecture. I didn't care at all for the art, but it was great to see the buildings. Plan to spend 30 to 60 minutes here. It's free.

Very interesting and beautiful artworks done in various mediums.Ted. De Grazia was one of a kind. The gallery that he built with his own hands is itself a interesting work of art. Hidden away along the Santa Catalina mountains in northern Tucson it's we'll worth the visit and it will not cost you a cent . We're going back to... More

Remember those doe-eyed angel children that were on everything in the 60s? This is the artist. See DeGrazia's creations, his home and grounds. He studied under Diego Rivera and was quite prolific. It's free and the walking isn't too difficult. Check out the adobe construction, the little chapel and the gift shop. You can see most of it in an... More
