Tucson De Grazia Gallery in the Sun

Publications: blogs; collection catalogue; exhibition catalogues.

Devoted to the work of a single artist, De Grazia, the Gallery in the Sun was designed by the artist and constructed under his supervision. The Gallery contains the largest and most complete collection of his art in existence. The size of this collection prevents it from being exhibited in its entirety. Therefore, the museum has developed a policy whereby certain rooms have been set aside for permanent exhibits, while other areas are dedicated to rotating exhibits. Beside the Gallery stands De Grazias Mission in the Sun. The little chapel was built in honor of Padre Kino, and dedicated to Our Lady of Guadeloupe, patron saint of Mexico. The artist designed the building and carried out its construction.
