The City Different
With a population of 85,000, Santa Fe is home to more than 200 galleries, museums, and private art dealers. Here, you’ll find an amazing breadth of art and antiquities.
Seeking a suit of Samurai armor? Or perhaps Native American Pop Art? Contemporary Pueblo pottery? Or classic New Mexico landscape paintings? Drypoint etchings by Edvard Munch and Pablo Picasso? Or maybe hand-blown glass? On any given day, it’s all in Santa Fe.
Visitors say they come here for the same things locals live for: warm golden sunlight, inspiring broad blue skies, and adobe architecture give the City Different a one-of-a-kind sense of place. Lonely Planet called Santa Fe “a place that makes its own rules without ever forgetting its long and storied past. . . Santa Fe is also synonymous with contemporary chic, thanks to its thriving art market, gourmet restaurants, great museums, upscale spas, and world-class opera.” People also come here for the people. Native Americans from 23 tribes and pueblos, New Age transplants, Spanish families, second-lifers (read: retirees reinventing themselves) from both coasts, visiting and relocated filmmakers—all add up to a creative class fueling a New Mexico arts-and-cultural sector that’s larger than the construction and manufacturing industries here combined. And it makes Santa Fe a great place to be.
