    Wow. A 10 acre art gallery sounds amazing on its own, but your photos and account really cements that impression!

    What an interesting array of art in all its forms. The sheer scale of a 10 acre art gallery is impressive and I love the diversity of his works that your pictures show. You could definitely call DeGrazia eccentric and committed to his ideals but not mad.

    Wow! This is stunning. I love how even in his art gallery he is still not conforming to the norm. Love the garden shot- looks incredible!

    Wow, how beautiful. I would love to spend more time exploring Arizona and seeing some of its galleries. I did a road trip last summer, but was in a rush to get to the Grand Canyon. Next time, I need to go a bit slower through Arizona and see more!

    This might be the largest art gallery I’ve ever heard of! My best friend is an artist so I know he would love to visit here. Some of the art is so interesting.

    Definitely different, but amazing. I have never heard about the DeGrazia, but some of his works are truly inspiring. My favorite artist is Michel-Jean Cazabon. He is a Trinidadian artist. I also have many other international favorites.

    DeGrazia was a bold man with a vision. One has to be impressed with that, even if his art style is not your favorite. Pretty feisty to burn his paintings to avoid the taxes!

    I have not spent anytime in Tucson, your article is persuading me to plan a visit soon. This looks like a mecca of art not to miss. The art is displayed so it definitely looks like southwest to me. Arizona is calling my name!

    This looks like somewhere that I would LOVE to see! The artwork is gorgeous, and I am always interested in learning more about the creative genius behind the work–I can’t believe that he burned so many of his paintings!

    I never heard of this gallery but wow, I am sure happy to learn about it through you. It’s really courageous of DeGarzia to burn 100 of his paintings to protest against the Federation tax. That’s a huge sacrifice! His art looks so beautiful and I love how he incorporate his culture in his art. I would love to see this place. Truly inspiring.
