A great gallery from a very interesting man. Even more so when you realize that he built the whole compound almost single-handedly.

I love stopping by here to browse, or especially love the quiet contemplation when I go to the outdoor CHAPEL. Very special place here in Tucson.

The gallery has many rooms and lovely pieces by DeGrazia. The building is interesting, too. Not crowded and one is able to spend as much or as little time at the Gallery. Nice gift shop, friendly staff.

There are originals hanging as well..... and his love for the Indians of Arizona was evident in his work. His choice ot color at times takes my breath away... and Ted... More

What a great way to spend an hour or so walking through the different buildings along with the history and the artwork.. Fell in love with so many pieces! This is a must see place if you're in the Tucson area and have a little time to kill.

A great place to spend a hot afternoon walking through the gallery and viewing all the various art that was done by one of the most humblest of men, Ted DeGrazia. The staff is always eager to assist and answer any questions you may have, and be sure to pick up a collectors piece!

A wonderful way to spend your day. Not only does the main building exhibit outstanding works of art but there are additional buildings onsite with local artists who sell their art at reasonable prices.
