16th Annual Baca Arts Tour
Like farolitos and chile-spiked chocolate, the Baca Street Arts Tour is a Santa Fe holiday tradition. This year, Art.i.fact is celebrating the tour’s 16th year with a special “pop-up” shop with our friends from Reflective Jewelry. They’re bringing a wonderful selection of their ethically-sourced necklaces, earrings, and baubles! In addition, we’re hosting local musician Westin McDowell, who will perform a solo acoustic set of his unique, jazzy music on Saturday, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. Plus, you can check out our current art exhibition, Big Ideas – a small works show featuring 25 artists and more than 40 pieces of art.
Tour dates and times are:
- Friday, Dec. 2, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
- Saturday, Dec. 3, 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
Come for the party from 4- 8 p.m.!
- Sunday, Dec.4, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
More than 20 artists will join the galleries and shops in the neighborhood for a weekend of festivities. As a special bonus, the Wayward Comedy troupe will perform in the Liquid Light Glass Studio parking lot from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
