Did you know that it was not until about 20 years ago that Santa Fe became a major city? Today, the city has a population of nearly 70,000. It is not surprising that people continue to buy or build a home in the area, given its stable economy, unique landmarks, and many beautiful earth toned adobe styled buildings that give the city its distinctive look. Have you recently been looking for condos for sale in Santa Fe, but wondering what, exactly, there is to do in the local area? Here are three attractions worth checking out.
1. Santa Fe International Folk Art Market
For 10 years, the Folk Art Market has been bringing together more than 150 artists from 54 different countries. Every year, the market provides a place where traditional artists, who have mastered their various crafts, can demonstrate, display, and sell their work. The market seeks to provide economic empowerment, and to help improve the quality of life of artist communities. The market occurs every July, and the next festival dates are July 11, 12 and 13th of 2014.
2. Pequeno Home and Garden Tours of Luxury Living in the Mid West
Wondering what the latest trends in Santa fe luxury homes are? Then check out the home tours, led by the Santa Fe Garden Club. For the Pequeno tours, entrance is $45.00 a person, and during the tour you get to visit three beautiful residences on a private tour that lasts from three to four hours. For the larger Behind Adobe Walls Tours, you get to visit eight locations, including gardens, private collection homes in Santa Fe, and historical houses. You get a guided bus tour, with optional $20 lunch, for $75 per person.
3. “Stereotype, Misconceptions of the Native American”
Until the end of December, this will be a featured museum show at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts. In an interesting twist, this artist’s piece uses boom boxes as a vessel to respond to some of the stereotypes that have been placed throughout the decades and centuries on the Native people. Cannupa Hanska Lugar, the artist, was born in South Dakota, in the Standing Rock Reservation. He applies clay to archaic technologies in order to create a new space for exposing the absurdities of false and fixed identities.
