The stimulating 2014 exhibit told diverse stories with a constant thread that should be experienced by all if we are to save ourselves from disaster. Powerful.

I have visited Site three times in the past two years. It's always engaging and interesting. Ive now moved to Santa Fe and plan on making more visits. The parking is behind or across the street and it's an easy to walk to the farmers market on Saturdays.

Located near the Farmers Market, this building houses an exhibit on fractured landscapes, which are displayed both literally and metaphorically. The timeline exhibit alone, detailing the treaties made and broken with natives of the area, is worth the price of admission. BTW, admission is free on Saturday mornings but changes promptly at 12:01.

The exhibit we saw took some time to get into. But once we did, I went back to some of the areas I had breezed through. The location is accessible near the rail station (commuter train to Albuquerque), so there is parking and nearby food and drink and the farmers market. Nice to stroll around this area.

As another reviewer correctly characterized it, SITE Santa Fe is a venue for temporary shows either of a single artist's work or of several artists presented topically. It's an awfully nice space, but I imagine that whether you enjoy your experience or not depends largely on the show you see when you visit. We saw a conceptual presentation concerning food.... More

Calling SITE an art museum seems a bit off, but it is also not a gallery in the traditional sense. What site does is non-permanent shows in their large space near the rail yard district. During my visit they had the whole space taken over by an artist that was truly incredible. The staff was super friendly and really willing... More

The Enrique Martinez Celaya show was heart felt. He uses video, paintings, assemblies, and sculpture, as well as music to evoke a sense of time and someone's personal history. The show really got under my skin -- and it only took 15 minutes to walk through the installation.

Site Santa Fe is the core of the contemporary art scene in Santa Fe. The Enrique Martinez Celaya show is first rate. It is evocative, thoughtful, and beautiful. Do yourself a big favor and go!

The great thing about Santa Fe is that it has turned from a city with a high rate of Indian and Mexican art to a sort of Mecca of comprehensive art forms. SITE fits that bill with avant grade art on display which showcases very well the modern art scene of the city. If you take the walk down from... More

I usually enjoy visiting contemporary art museums - it normally makes for an enjoyable day. Both my husband and I thought that SITE was disappointing. Maybe it was just the exhibits that were on display during our visit. Art is supposed to be uplifting, but the art on display here just left me feeling sad. On the plus side, the... More
