From her iconic flowers to skulls, nudes and still life, exhibitions regularly rotate round both her celebrated and her less well-known pieces. All in all, a great introduction to a giant of 20th century Modernism.
Museum of Fine Arts: The New Mexico Museum of Fine Arts is a good starting point for visitors to get familiar with the breadth and scope of New Mexico art. Housed in a building that dates from 1917, the museum has provided space for emerging artists since the days when the gallery scene itself was in nascent stages. Offering a glimpse of the Southwest via art that is as intimate as it is political, its wide and varied collections range from oil paintings to contemporary photography.
Shop: Full of Southwestern charm, Santa Fe is populated with intimate shops selling a variety of idiosyncratic treasures, from cowboy boots to its famed turquoise jewelry and pottery. Taking visitors into charming historic buildings, elegant boutiques, galleries and flea markets, a tour through its streets and alleyways will surprise the curio-seeker in you to no end.
The Santa Fe Plaza: Mere steps from the front door of the Inn of the Anasazi is the bustling Santa Fe Plaza, which is home to some of the finest shopping in town and some of the best art festivals in the world. Here, visitors can find the best in clothing, jewelry, art and native pottery in an array of independent, locally-owned boutiques. Additionally, visitors can also shop for distinctive jewelry at the Palace of the Governor’s, where American Indian artists sell their wares under its historic portal. Each year, the Plaza will also be transformed into numerous art markets, including the Spanish Market and the Santa Fe Indian Market, making it a prime destination for curio-seekers.
Santa Fe Farmers Market: One of the largest farmers’ market in the United States, the Santa Fe Farmers’ Market is all about fresh, locally-grown produce, offering over 150 active vendors selling a stunning variety of veggies, fresh eggs, honey and nursery plants. Open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday and Tuesday, this is the place to be if visitors want to make sure their salesperson is also their farmer. A crafts fair and an artisan fair are also offered on selected days.
The Artistic Side of Canyon Road: Many of the artists who called Santa Fe home settled along Canyon Road, eventually creating a diverse half-mile stretch of restaurants, studios, boutiques, and galleries showcasing art of all types and beckoning art lovers and collectors from far and wide.
Originally Spain’s seat of government for the region, the Palace of the Governors today is a museum chronicling nearly 400 years of New Mexico history.
The True Southwest: Covering more than 33,000 acres of beautiful Southwestern terrain, Bandelier National Monument protects early evidence of human settlement in the region going back 11,000 years, such as historic petroglyphs and ancient masonry.
Accommodations: The recently re-imagined guest rooms reflect a modern, sophisticated aesthetic while still celebrating the hotel’s Southwestern spirit and adobe architecture. They now feature a restful palette of natural, earth tones with colorful accents provided by pieces such as pillows made from classic Pendleton blankets. Hand-crafted wooden furniture has been custom designed to fit with the fresh, contemporary and residential feel of the interiors.
Dining: The Anasazi Restaurant and Bar offers a classic example of Santa Fe fine dining.
