This is a small space packed with art and unique structures. An artist colony and Indian cultural center of sorts. Well worth a couple of hours visit strolling around. A great place to visit that is unique to Tucson.

I have to admit that I wasn't a huge fan of DeGrazia's work. However, after going through this "museum" I am now. He seems like a fascinating person. I love going through this Gallery. I especially like the narrated room of the stations of the cross with paintings. It is fabulous. You will enjoy this stop!

This Gallery features the Life and Art of DeGrazia. Its free, prints available and very charming and interesting examples of his life-style. Its a little off the beaten path, but well worth the minor inconvenience. Ample parking.

Whenever we are in Tucson, we take time out to visit Ted DeGrazia's home, museum, and gravesite. When we started coming, it was in the middle of desert, but now the area around it is quite built up. However, the minute you drive in the gate, you are in a different world. Meditate in the chapel, walk the lovely grounds... More

I'd never heard of DeGrazia and didn't thin I'd enjoy seeing his work, BUT, this place was wonderful. Just walking though the adobe building was a unique experience. Seeing his charming garden, full of unusual artifacts, and gurgling fountain was a treat. The "museum" is really several buildings that he built to live in or to serve other purposes, they... More

One of the hidden treasures in Tucson, AZ. Located on Swan, North of Sunrise in the Foothills of Tucson. We always bring our out of town guests here, and everyone is always delighted! Nice grounds with amazing views of the Foothills. Besides the art museum located here, you have some historical buildings you can tour on the property to show... More

This artist has never appealed,to me, but I went with a friend who loves him and she bought several prints. She knew him when he was alive. The area is pleasant, however.

DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun Historic District remind me of the Old West or Mexico. DeGrazia used local material and like my Grandfather a old fashion blacksmith used the local resources he collected and natural desert material. I appreciated the colorful colors he used to paint the native people of the Sonora desert. I highly recommend this place before or... More

Nice little adventure for a couple hours! Tour the grounds and be amazed with the former home of the late DeGrazia and how simple he lived and beat up old jalopy he drove around the desert in search of wood for his creations and cooking and heat! Don't want to tell too much and spoil it for you...Nice Museum and... More
