Allan Houser Sculpture Garden

Allan Houser was a renowned Apache artist who taught at Santa Fe’s Institute of American Indian Arts. He was one of the most influential 20th century artists in the entire world with work from the Heard Museum in Phoenix to the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. He bought land outside of Santa Fe where his work is currently displayed. Visitors must make a reservation for directions to the land and to tour.

The tour guide (in the hat) was extremely interesting, knowledgeable and personable.  She allowed ample time and space for photographers.
