Spring in Santa Fe is a wonderful time to catch up on art and soak up the sun before the hustle and bustle of tourist season kicks in. If you love art and enjoy leisurely taking it in without a crowd, now is the time to visit. While you’re here, you might want to check out some of our favorite museums:
The Georgia O’Keeffe
Now through September the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum is featuring a compelling exhibit where you can compare and contrast the photography of Ansel Adams with the paintings of O’Keeffe from their time in Hawaii.
The New Mexico Museum of Art
It’s located right in the heart of downtown Santa Fe making it just too easy to stroll through the Plaza, catch the blossoming trees and fill up on some amazing art and history.
Home to The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, The Museum of International Folk Art and The Museum of Spanish Colonial Art. There is also an amazing courtyard, stunning views and the Museum Hill Café. This location is a must see and well worth your afternoon.
In addition to the variety of art institutions, Spring in Santa Fe is a great time to get out and hike. The sun is out during this lovely season. Driving up the mountain and venturing into Hyde Park is great as there are plenty of hikes that vary in difficulty. The Dale Ball Trails are also easy to navigate, dog friendly and accessible without having to leave town. These trails are also known for their ‘buena vistas’.
