Famed Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia had a vision and his 10-acre compound lives on as a museum, a "Gallery in the Sun," (a permanent home for his work), and a venue for visiting artists to display their work. On the grounds is a charming and tiny chapel decorated with DeGrazia murals. Here's the entrance and tomorrow I'll post some interior views. For more info on the artist, click here.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
