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 in the Sun and Museum 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.
