From lively but remote Indian trading posts, to the traffic jams and skyscrapers of New York City, the "DeGrazia Downtown" exhibit showcases a collection of street scenes by Tucson artist Ted DeGrazia, dating from 1940 to 1974. A free opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, September 6, 2019. The exhibits will remain on display through January 29, 2020. Visitors can experience the DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun through the 10-acre foothills site and explore the art and architecture of Ted DeGrazia, including the original home of the prolific artist and his wife Marion, their burial sites, the adobe Mission in the Sun (The Mission is currently close due to a fire), Gallery in the Sun and the cactus corral via a self-guided tour. Good walking shoes are advised. Allow extra time to watch a 30-minute documentary about the artist and to visit the gift shop.
