DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun
Located in: Catalina Foothills District
Tucson’s legendary landmark of art and architecture was designed and built by the late Arizona artist Ted DeGrazia. On the National Register of Historic Places, the 10-acre Foothills retreat includes the adobe gallery, gift shop, cactus courtyard, Mission in the Sun, the artist's former home, and his grave. Six permanent collections of DeGrazia paintings portray colorful cultures of the Sonoran desert, and rotating exhibits feature a wide range of some 15,000 DeGrazia originals, from oil paintings and watercolors to ceramics and sculptures. The gallery is open to the public 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily except New Year's, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Admission Fees - $8.00 for adults, $5.00 for ages 12-18, under 12 are free.

I took my out of town guest there. I wasn't impressed. It was interesting but I left with an empty feeling. the house was funky, you got to know a bit about DeGrazia but something was lacking.
A must do in Tucson!
I go there for the Art and to stroll in their easy pathways to hike. A great legacy of local art. The gallery surroundings are beautiful The artist is buried in the premises! Might be a bit boring...
Pricey, small, far north, not real interesting unless you are totally into DeGrazia.
I think the title pretty much says it all. It's pricey, its far north (that's ok if that is the area you are at already, but not worth a long drive at all!). And if you aren't totally into the art...
