Eastside



While it may appear rustic and quaint, Santa Fe's Eastside is a strong player in the international art scene, rivaling that of New York or Paris. Canyon Road is the main avenue for the region's top galleries. Santa Fe is the second largest art market in the nation, and it's all centered on this narrow, diagonal one-way street heading away from the plaza. More than 100 galleries and studios line the road, which was first home to Spanish settlers as far back as the 1750s and was later transformed into the art colony of today beginning in the early twentieth century. Renowned artists including Sheldon Parsons and Andrew Dasburg made it their home early on and many others have followed up to the present day – it's not uncommon to come across many a New York refugee here. Heading further south along the old Santa Fe Trail leads to the popular Museum Hill, in a picturesque location on a hill just below the towering Sangre de Cristos and looking out on the Rio Grande Valley towards Albuquerque, Museum Hill's facilities house the cultural and artistic history of the region and beyond. The Museum of Spanish Colonial Arts, Museum of Indian Arts, as well as the Museum of International Folk Art are all found here.
