Come here on a Friday evening to do their version of 'art walk'. It's very fun, a good workout, and there are a lot of interesting and creative works on display. I loved the windmill installation. I would die for a yard full of those.

I don't claim to be an art lover, but agreed to 'walk Canyon Road' with my wife on a Saturday evening, after most galleries were closed. I was surprised at all the outdoor sculpture, ranging from the serious to the whimsical (that's the extent of my art criticism), and actually enjoyed it quite a bit.

A long string of artists with offerings spanning affordable to museum quality. This is long established & justifiably famous. People seek this out from around the world. Mandatory in my opinion.

Although we just drove along the street, there was plenty of sculptures and interesting art pieces on display.

I draw and paint and collect...ended up buying a lovely painting at a great price. Not enough time to see all the galleries...but everyone in every gallery. We visited was helpful, friendly and amazingly knowledgable. There are lite really hundreds of art galleries in Santa Fe, most of them on the drive, many with amazingly good and valuableieces.

Wonderful way to spend a day going from gallery to gallery and stop for coffee in between. The work is amazing the talent exquisite, the art is certainly aimed at the very upper echelons.

Of all the things to do in Santa Fe, this is probably my least favorite, especially if it is hot or crowded. Just overdone and overhyped. There are much better galleries with, in many cases, better art other places. Some of the gallery gardens are nice though and you probably want to say " been there, done that".

We were disappointed. We were expecting a vibrant area of eclectic shops and galleries and food. What we found was gallery after gallery after gallery. Unless your reason d'être is art I would recommend spending the bulk of your Santa Fe time elsewhere.
