SFGA & Kiwanis Bring You A Once In 100 Year Opportunity!



It's happening! Zozobra's 100th anniversary takes place on Friday, August 30, 2024 and the Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe is fired up to promote the unique arts and cultural traditions of Santa Fe through a special Centennial Project in collaboration with the Santa Fe Gallery Association!


Who better than Old Man Gloom himself to spark up the imagination and creativity of Santa Fe artists in an iconic City Different arts project?


With the generous assistance of the Santa Fe Gallery Association and the Santa Fe Arts and Culture Department, Kiwanis has commissioned a unique series of hand-painted 4-ft. Zozobra statues that will appear on pedestals this summer in galleries and locations throughout Santa Fe and New Mexico.


In keeping with the Santa Fe Kiwanis Club's mission to help our community's children experience rich, inspiring, and culturally fulfilling lives, the sculptures were purposely crafted to be child-sized, inviting little Zozobra fans to engage with Old Man Gloom eye to eye. The fiberglass sculptures will join forces in a group exhibition revealed at Art Santa Fe in the Santa Fe Community Convention Center in time for Art Week, July 12 through 21, 2024 and remain on display through close of auction on Labor Day.


Fine art prints of the statues will be unveiled in a festive summer opening reception and auction at The Bishop's Lodge on Friday July 19, 2024. Funds generated from the sale of the sculptures and the fine art prints will help support the 100th Burning of Zozobra and the Santa Fe Gallery Association's programs promoting our art community. Bid early and often, as Buy It Now options will be available on some items!

The Zozobras will be on display in public buildings and private galleries starting Saturday, June 1st to enhance your 100th Zozobra celebration. Look for our Zozobra Tracker Treasure Maps at participating locations, Visitor Centers and Tourism Offices and plan your personal parade to see them all!


While Zozobra may be reduced to embers for the 100th time on Friday, August 30, 2024, the visionary creations that come to life in the Kiwanis Painted Zozobra Statues Project will continue to inspire art-lovers for years to come!
