HSFF hosts a tour of four homes that previously belonged to pioneering, Santa Fe-based artists in
honor of the New Mexico Museum of Art's centennial celebration.

The New Mexico Museum of Art is partnering with the School for Advanced Research (SAR) and Historic Santa Fe Foundation (HSFF) to host a series of events highlighting Santa Fe’s rich cultural heritage, a program funded in part by a grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council. Sunday afternoon lectures on Indian art and historic architecture will be presented in the St. Francis Auditorium and the program will conclude on October 7, 2018 with a tour of four historic artists homes conducted by Historic Santa Fe Foundation. For more information on the public talks, please visit sarweb.org/public-talks.

On October 7, HSFF will host a tour of four historic homes of pioneering artists who helped shape Southwestern art during the early 1900s and were associated with the New Mexico Museum of Art in its early days as a Santa Fe cultural institution. The tour will be conducted from 1 to 5 pm. The Foundation will provide information, a detailed map, and knowledgeable guides in each home. We are currently finalizing the arrangements and will contact all ticket holders with details before the event.

All four properties were either actually built by the artists (Baumann and Bakos) or were existing structures that underwent substantial remodeling by the artists (Davey and Rush). The result is that each of them survives as a strong and tangible expression of the artist’s aesthetic, work practices and craftsmanship. The four houses express the lives and personalities of their creators probably more than any other artists’ properties remaining in Santa Fe from the period (1920 through 1935).
