10-acre National Historic District designed and built by Arizona artist Ettore “Ted” DeGrazia.  Following a regional tradition of building a chapel or shrine in thanks, DeGrazia created an adobe mission at the foot of the Santa Catalina Mountains, from adobe bricks were made onsite. Hs home and additional buildings followed.

DeGrazia worked in various media, always with an eye toward capturing the spirit of the Southwest and its people.

Six permanent collections of paintings trace historical events and native cultures of the Southwest. Rotating exhibitions display some of the 15,000 DeGrazia originals housed at the gallery, including oils, watercolors, sketches, serigraphs, lithographs, sculptures, ceramics and jewelry.
