Fodor's Review

Arizonan artist Ted DeGrazia, who depicted Southwest Native American and Mexican life in a manner some find kitschy and others adore, built this sprawling, spacious, single-story museum with the assistance of Native American friends, using only natural material from the surrounding desert.

You can visit DeGrazia's workshop, former home, tranquil chapel, and grave. Although the original works are not for sale, the museum's gift shop has a wide selection of prints,

ceramics, and books by and about the colorful artist.

Amazing Home Tops Watts Towers

I have been to Tucson at least ten times, and thought I had seen all the interesting tourist sites, but my daughter-in-law insisted I try DeGrazia's gallery and home. After all, the price was right -- free! I ended up spending an entire afternoon there, entranced with the artist's creativity in his pottery, his metalwork, and especially in his decorating of his home and gardens. Now I consider it a MUST-SEE for friends who are visiting Tucson.
