Passport to the Arts kicks of the summer season on Canyon Road this weekend
This weekend, Canyon Road will devote itself to a celebration of the arts. From visual mediums to musical melodies, Santa Fe’s famed arts district will come alive with art lovers from all walks of life.
The event will rev up on Friday with special exhibitions and openings at several of the galleries, boutiques and restaurants along the road.
Things will really kick into high gear on Saturday, with a day packed full of events, including live music, a silent auction, and much more.
The fun will start early with a quick draw at 9:30 a.m. Thirty-three artists from galleries all along Canyon Road are participating in the quick draw. Each artist will have 90 minutes to create an original work of art, which will be auctioned off immediately following the event.
We will be hosting one of the three sites for the quick draw in our sculpture garden and are sponsoring five artists in the event, including Barbara Ivey, Cheryl Koen, James Trigg, Andrée Hudson, and Bernard Marks. We will also have several pieces in the silent auction.
Live performances by local student musicians and a free concert by the Tribute Trio will set the musical tone for the day.

The weekend will come to a close on Sunday with the Historic Santa Fe Foundation’s annual Historic Homes Tour. This year the foundation has chosen to highlight buildings that appeared on the 1912 Kings Map of Canyon Road. The tour will run from 1-4 p.m. Visit www.historicsantafe.org/Tour.htm for more information about the tour.
