Artist in the desert
This historic site offers art work that far exceeds the captivating children for which DeGrazia is known. The man worked in diverse media and his range of artistic talent might surprise the Gallery's...
Very Arizona, Very Interesting
Although now dead, Mr. DeGrazia was raised in a mining town and his art work reflects Indian culture, Mexican American themes, horses, cattle, and the very familiar DeGraza angels,
Interesting setting, less interesting art
We enjoyed strolling around the site. However good the subjects of the paintings, the art of DeGrazia was not to our taste. So we can only rate it as an average site for visiting.
