Santa Fe Railyard Arts District Food Tour
The Santa Fe Railyard Arts District Tour is the only way for you to see the whole of the city, take in much more of the city than you would have seen otherwise, and buy art that you might take home. This tour is led by an art enthusiast who knows the town, and they let you meet the artists who are working their craft every day.
The people that you meet on this tour will change your perspective on art, and they let you know that you can buy new kinds of art that are developing in this place. Santa Fe is a lot like an artist's commune, and it should be treated that way because it brings you that much closer to the people who are painting and sculpting every day.
You are free to ask the tour guide questions during the tour, and they let you know who they would buy from. You might start a little art collection, and you could come to be friends with a few of these artists. These people want to get to know you, and they will let you know when they have new material coming out.
