|From 1:30 - 2:30 PM, Carol Moore will give you a guided walk around the Ranch. You'll see the beautiful grounds and plantings there, and meet some friendly horses and see long-horned cattle, and if you're lucky, see the cute little burro - if you're even more fortunate, the burro will allow you to hear his Metropolitan Opera debut. He has a beautiful voice! Something about "Donkey Serenade?"|
After the walk-around, we'll depart about 2:45 PM for a stop at DeGrazia's Gallery in the Sun. While there, you'll have a guided visit and see the late Ted DeGrazia's art.
In the 1940s, Arizona artist Ted DeGrazia had little success finding a gallery to represent him, so he decided to take matters into his own hands. First he built a studio at the corner of Prince Road and Campbell in Tucson, but as the city grew around him, he and his wife Marion bought 10 isolated acres in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains where they built a chapel, home, and a small adjoining gallery to exhibit his originals. The prolific artist soon needed more space to house his continuing output of originals. As his fame and finances flourished, he designed and built a larger adobe galley on the site and moved his growing collections out of what is now known as the Little Gallery at DeGrazia Gallery in the Sun.
Depart for the hotel at 4:30 PM.
